The Unexplored Connections Between Two of History’s Greatest Leaders
Ronald Reagan and Winston Churchill were true giants of the twentieth century, but somehow historians have failed to notice the many similarities between these extraordinary leaders. Until now.
Steven F. Hayward–who has written acclaimed studies of both Reagan and Churchill–goes beneath superficial differences to uncover the remarkable parallels between the two statesmen. In exploring these connections, Hayward shines a light on the nature of political genius and the timeless aspects of statesmanship–critical lessons in this or any age.
“In times of crisis, countries need leaders of courage, conviction, and clarity with an ability to rally the nation to overcome its challenges. Churchill and Reagan were two such historic leaders. Anyone interested in the lessons of leadership will find this a compelling and important book.” —Newt Gingrich
“Brilliant. If you admired Churchill and liked Reagan, you will love this book. You will smile and nod yes to yourself again and again as the comparability of these two men is unveiled.” —Martin Anderson, editor of Reagan, In His Own Hand
“A well-researched and nicely written book with enough ‘aha’ similarities to make one think that there might be something in the character of these two landmark figures to be worth teaching future generations.” —Washington Times
“A great book on greatness.” —PowerLineBlog.com
“Hayward makes a compelling case that these two men shared a vision–and some important character traits–that made them the twentieth century’s greatest statesmen. . . . An elegantly written book.” —The American Enterprise
