Half Genius, Half Bloody Idiot: Churchill as Warlord

In this Rising Tide Foundation lecture, Martin Sieff introduces the bad, the worse and the ugly of Winston Churchill by unveiling a solid 80 year process of world history. Sieff, the journalist, historian and poet leaps over time to examine the parallel psyches of personalities who made history for better or worse contrasting the military and strategic incompetence of Churchill with the brilliant strategic insight of general Grant and President Roosevelt. This is a lively presentation with many twists, turns and segues guaranteed to infuse deeper meaning and appreciation for the historical events of WW1 and WW2 for experts and laypersons alike.
