A New York Times Bestseller

From two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning author Thomas E. Ricks comes a dual biography of Winston Churchill and George Orwell, whose farsighted vision and inspired action preserved democracy from the threat of totalitarianism. Taken together, their lives are a testament to the power of moral conviction, and to the courage it can take to stay true to it.


Customer Reviews

— Booklist (starred)

“A superb account of two men who set standards for defending liberal democracy that remain disturbingly out of reach.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)
