#1 New York Times bestselling author Thomas E. Ricks discusses his acclaimed dual biography of Prime Minister Winston Churchill and George Orwell, author of 1984 and Animal Farm. Focusing on the pivotal years from the mid-1930s through the 1940s, Ricks examines Churchill’s large role in the defeat of Hitler and the Axis and how Orwell reckoned with the menace of authoritarian rule in a way that would define the stakes of the Cold War.
