The Roar of the Lion

By Richard Toye

Richard Toye looks at Churchill’s rhetoric through a forensic, literary lens – setting the speeches that stimulated, invigorated, and excited many against the narratives that caused depression, angst, and disappointment. This is a magnificent book, delving into the archives to look at Churchill’s second world war rhetoric as a whole;  he considers failures as well as successes and pulls the nation’s moral – and the speeches’ impact on the nation’s moral – into sharp focus. You’ll be drawn in to the poetry, convinced by the mastery of rhetoric itself, and startled by the new perspectives on how Churchill’s words were received at home, amongst allies and neutrals, and within enemy and occupied countries. It’s essential reading if you really want to understand how Churchill’s words helped to win a war.
