Christopher Catherwood talked about his book Winston Churchill: The Flawed Genius of World War II, published by Berkley Press. He examined Winston Churchill’s military decisions and policies between June 1940 and December 1941 that the author argues were disadvantageous to the Allies efforts by extending the war and destabilizing several regions that have remained in chaos. He responded to questions from members of the audience.
Christopher Catherwood is the author of several books, including Churchill’s Folly: How Winston Churchill Created Modern Iraq, published by Basic Books. Mr. Catherwood teaches history at Cambridge University and is an annual summer visiting professor at the University of Richmond. He formerly served as a consultant to the Strategic Futures Team in Tony Blair’s cabinet.
The event April 7, 2009, at 4 p.m. in Tyler Haynes Commons of the University of Richmond was co-sponsored by the university’s International Studies program and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in the School of Continuing Studies. close
