At Hillsdale College this week, we’re celebrating the life of Winston Churchill and are excited for the new film about his leadership during World War II, Darkest Hour.
Arguably, no statesman shaped the twentieth century more than Winston Churchill. To know Churchill fully is to understand his combination of boldness and caution, of assertiveness and humility, that defines statesmanship at its best. He displayed statesmanship most famously in his leadership during World War II and, just as importantly, in his defense of constitutionalism.
I have studied Churchill most of my life, including serving as director of research for Martin Gilbert, the official biographer of Winston Churchill. I am also privileged to teach courses about Churchill here at Hillsdale and online.
A close study of Churchill’s words and deeds offers timeless lessons about the principles and virtues required for great statesmanship. These are lessons that can help us to live our own lives, cope with our own problems, and serve the cause of our own country as it appears today.
I’m writing today to announce that Hillsdale’s six-part online course, “Winston Churchill and Statesmanship,” which I teach, is now available on DVD. This course is a great resource to learn more about a great statesman. You can add this DVD box set to your home library or give it as a gift.
We’re producing a limited number of DVD sets, so I wanted to let you know about this offer right away. Here’s a secure link to reserve your copy of “Winston Churchill and Statesmanship” on DVD:
