Comments:

Orevise
Martin Gilbert is the official Churchill biographer. Here he depends mostly on pictures -- many in color and full page. The book arrived from Amazon in fairly decent condition. The pictures inside the book show Churchill in better form than this cover might suggest; I like the book --buy one.
Mori
A little difficult to open the covers. The back binding is not very flexible
