In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, works like this highlight the significance of political leadership and illustrate qualities leaders need to make dynamic decisions. One chief quality is fearlessness and Winston Churchill is a leader that manifested this to its fullest.
Larson injects new life into one of the most polarising and dynamic political figures of the 20th century.
