How Churchill Helped Win the First World War

" Equally informative and entertaining, Churchill the Young Warrior covers the formative period of one of the most formidable and influential figures of the twentieth century.  In stylish prose and with a perceptive eye for color, detail, and context, Mr. Harte follows Churchill the soldier, journalist, and politician.  The author parallels Churchill's public career and private life with a trenchant analysis of the political, military, diplomatic, economic, social, and cultural climate that simultaneously invigorated and roiled Europe during the three decades leading up to the Great War.

About the Author

Author John Harte on Winston ChurchillJohn Harte was born in London, England, between the two World Wars.  He absorbed the experiences and lessons of the first world war while growing up in its aftermath, and lived through the second one.

The fact that the author was born when London was the center of the British Empire and the free world, politically, financially, socially and culturally, invests his books about Winston Churchill and England with particular significance, since few people are left who can describe at first-hand what it was really like.

He witnessed at first hand the bombing of London and the Battle of Britain; the launching of the D-Day landings from England's south coast, and the enemy's V1 and V2 rocket attacks intended to destroy London and its population.

He began his writing career as a playwright with four plays produced in London theaters.  He was also an investigative journalist writing for three leading publications in the UK.

After moving to South Africa to work in the advertising industry with J. Walter Thompson, he also wrote freelance feature articles for the two leading newspapers, which were syndicated worldwide by Reuters, and he also broadcast his own stories on the SABC.

He now lives in Ottawa, Canada.

    Successful Management

    in the Digital Age

    John Harte's new book on the influence of digital technologies on leadership, management and marketing, reveals the poor judgments of major conglomerates who chose to deindustrialize the UK and USA by offshoring production, and risk weakening their brands by reversing the process back to factory orientation; thereby creating massive unemployment and our present economic crisis.
