I found this book to be very informative. It could get a bit tedious at times but was so full of background material about Churchill and Orwell that I never knew about like Orwell intending Animal Farm as primarily a satire on the Russian Revolution. What Orwell and Churchill had in common was the issue of human freedom and moral conviction as evidenced in Churchill's role in the defeat of Hitler and Orwell's through showing the menace of authoritarian rule in Animal Farm and 1984.
