Beaverbrook as a politician, newspaper magnate, historian, and high-pressure organizer was nothing less than a phenomenon. His Canadian childhood; his political intrigues; his courageous struggles against the asthma that almost crippled him; his amazing success during World War II, when he undertook to produce aircraft seemingly out of thin air and concentrated to such effect on organizing aid for Russia; his intensive puruit of editors and staff for his various newspapers; his close relations with Winston Churchill. All these facets of his life provide vivid passages in these pages.
