In this, the first of a new 10-part lecture series on Winston Churchill, historian Andrew Roberts examines Churchill’s description of becoming prime minister in May 1940: “I felt as if I were walking with destiny and that all my past life had been but a preparation for this hour and for this trial.”
Andrew Roberts, visiting professor at the War Studies Department at King’s College, London, and author of Napoleon: A Life, Masters and Commanders: How Four Titans Won the War in the West, 1941–1945, is writing a single-volume, definitive biography of Winston Churchill.
