Winston Churchill was perhaps the greatest man of the 20th century, and he believed that the Jews had offered a larger contribution to the great causes of civilization than had any other people in human history. Churchill held that view not because of, but despite of the casual anti-Semitism of the British upper classes and aristocracy of the late-19th and early-20th century. That philo-Semitic affection moved Churchill to support Zionism, and it began a career-long endeavor to restore Jewish sovereignty in the land of Israel. Join Andrew Roberts, whose authoritative Churchill: Walking with Destiny the New York Times has called “the best single-volume biography of Churchill yet written,” to learn the inspiring history of Churchill’s Zionism.
