A history of Churchill's achievements in the Great War and why he was dubbed "the unsinkable politician" by the Morning Post when he returned to office in 1917. Here is the story of a man unjustly vilified: Churchill in World War I. His enemies, the Tory party, censured him for Antwerp, the Dardanelles, and Gallipoli. He could do no right and was regarded as a dangerous maniac. But the true story is quite the opposite. This book tells how, as a brilliant First Sea Lord, Churchill was ousted by his enemies, yet clawed his way back to power against all the odds. As the leading critic of senselessly sending men to march toward machine guns, his calls for "machines not men" went unheeded. After a spell in the trenches he returned to London to clear his name over the Dardanelles. Then he relentlessly fought his way back to power through his brilliant, incisive criticism of the land war. The unsinkable politician finally became Munitions Minister in 1917, where he pushed output to unimagined levels. His weapons delivered the victory that had eluded others for the previous three years.
