Churchill: Walking with Destiny

Speaking Topics
  • Winston Churchill’s Oratory

    Winston Churchill’s Oratory investigates how Churchill learnt to become one of the greatest public speakers of the twentieth century. He wasn’t a natural speaker, and once had to give up half way through when he tried to speak without notes, but knowing that he couldn’t succeed in politics without being an effective speaker, he taught himself to master the arts of rhetoric, in ways Andrew Roberts’ lecture—peppered with great Churchill jokes—will explain. Many of the techniques that Churchill are still used by inspiring public speakers today, and can be learnt by anybody with the confidence to stand up in front of an audience.

  • Leadership in World War Two

    Two looks at the interrelationship between four great men—Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, George Marshall and Alan Brooke—and the way it crated the grand strategy of the Western Allies between 1941 and 1945. The clashes, the shouting matches, the wit and humour, the great debates with hundreds of thousands of men’s lives at risk on the outcome of their momentous decisions. The lecture takes the audience from the news of Pearl Harbour through the great wartime conferences and the fundamental disagreements that the four men had over D-Day, and how they were resolved, contrasting it all the time with the way Hitler came to his strategic decisions.

  • The Israeli Miracle

    The Israeli Miracle is an impassioned defence of the right of the State of Israel to exist, and a celebration of what it has achieved in the two-thirds of a century since its founding. Andrew Roberts is one of the founders of the Friends of Israel Initiative—along with Jose Maria Azvar, President Alejandro Toledo of Peru and Nobel Peace Prize-winner Lord David Trimble—and he delivered The Israeli Miracle at the British House of Commons which went viral, arguing that Israel should be treated the same as any other country of the world, and denouncing the disinvestment and boycott campaigns against her.

  • Why Hitler Lost

    Why Hitler Lost takes the audience deep into the dark heart of the Nazi regime and explains how, whenever the best interests of the German Wehrmacht clashed with those of the Nazi party, Hitler always supported the latter. Again and again he put his loathsome Nazi philosophy first, ahead of the actions and decisions that Andrew Roberts believes might have won him the war. Roberts backs up his argument with newly discovered information from senior Nazi figures that appeared in his prize-winning book The Storm of War, which reached #2 on The Sunday Times bestseller list and of which Timothy Snyder wrote in The New York Times Book Review: “Splendid history. A brilliantly clear and accessible account of the war in all its theaters. Roberts’s descriptions of soldiers and officers are masterly and humane, and his battlefield set pieces are as gripping as any I have read.”

  • The Royal House of Windsor

    The Royal House of Windsor is the story of the triumphs and tribulations of the British royal family from an historian whose book of the same name was part of Lady Antonia Fraser’s history of the monarchy. Having known Princess Diana, and met the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the late Queen Mother—who told him what it had been like to be Empress of India—Prince William and Prince Harry, Andrew Roberts concentrates on telling the story of the family from when they adopted the name Windsor in 1917 via the Abdication Crisis right up to the present day. As the royal correspondent for NBC, Dr. Roberts was a familiar face to U.S. audiences numbering 30 million people during the wedding of Prince William to Princess Kate and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. He is an avowed monarchist.
