Synopsis

Continue to Pester, Nag and Bite is a brilliant, close-up look at Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War. Gilbert gets to the crux of eternal questions that have plagued the world's most powerful leaders, even up to the recently battlescarred politicians such as George Bush and Tony Blair. How does a war leader pace and pattern his day? How does he draw help and inspiration from those around him? How does he assess the information that is brought to him? How does his personal or political philosophy, or moral sense, sustain him? How does he deal with setbacks and disasters? What part do the secret worlds of Intelligence and Deception play in his decisions? How much of what he has to do must be kept secret?

By looking behind the public figure and wartime propaganda images, Gilbert reveals a very human, sensitive, and often tormented man, who nevertheless found the strength to lead his nation forward from the darkest and most dangerous of times, towards the defeat of a tenacious enemy.

Martin Gilbert was born in London in 1936. After two years of National Service, he read Modern History at Magdalen College, Oxford. In 1962 he was elected to a Fellowship at Merton College, Oxford, and in the same year became research assistant to Randolph Churchill, then writing the first two volumes of his father's official biography. On Randolph's death in 1968, Gilbert was asked to complete the biography. The eighth and final volume was published in 1988. In addition to these narrative volumes, Gilbert has continued to edit the multi-volume documentary series of Churchill's letters and documents. His numerous publications include Churchill: A Photographic Portrait and Churchill: A Life (both available from Pimlico). He was knighted in 1995.
