Abstract:

James C. Humes reveals the astonishingly accurate predictions of Britain's most famous prime minister and how his critics' perceptions of them shaped his political career. Who could have foreseen the start of World War I twenty-five years in advance? Who could have predicted the rise of al-Qaeda nearly eight decades before anyone had heard of Osama bin Laden? Winston Churchill did. Here, Humes reveals these and other shocking predictions made by this legendary figure. Churchill didn't need a crystal ball to tell the future. Using his skills as a historian, he studied patterns of the past and accurately foretold the rise of a Hitler-like figure and the year the Iron Curtain would fall. He even predicted the exact day of his own death. In fascinating detail, this astonishing biography documents the spot-on prophecies Churchill foretold and the political consequences he endured for sharing them.
