Lewis Lehrman, who served as a Heritage trustee for nearly two decades, is a great example of someone who loves Heritage and loves our country.
His contributions to Heritage and to our nation are vast and are well worth remembering as we shared with you last year.
The author of many books, Lehrman just released his latest book this week titled Lincoln & Churchill: Statesmen at War which examines the lives of Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill to learn what made them succeed as leaders–specifically as they led their countries through war.
Lehrman is able to pull back the cover on these two iconic leaders and give an insider look into their lives in a way that no one else ever has.
According to leading historians and authors:
For years, I have longed to be in the same room with Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill. And now Lewis Lehrman has given all of us that chance with this sweeping, yet intimate study of the war leadership of both remarkable men.
With penetrating insight, Lehrman unfolds the contrasts and similarities between these two leaders: their points of origin, their temperaments, the nature of their ambitions, their leadership styles. I savored every page of this magnificent work. –Doris Kearns Goodwin, world-renowned presidential historian
Few men have more profoundly shaped modern history than Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill. In this enlightening, original analysis of their leadership, Lewis E. Lehrman not only sheds a bright light on their remarkable achievements but he also deepens our understanding of the nature of statesmanship.
How two leaders of such radically different backgrounds and temperaments led their nations to victory in wars of national survival ‐‐ thus vindicating government of the people, by the people, and for the people ‐‐ is an inspiring story, based on deep research, told by Lehrman with great skill.
Admirers of both leaders, as well as history fans in general, will enjoy this very well written book and wonder why no previous historian has undertaken such an important comparative study. –Professor Michael Burlingame holds the Distinguished Chair in Lincoln Studies at the University of Illinois‐Springfield
If you are an admirer of the leadership Lincoln and Churchill displayed throughout their lives then you will love this book.
Please join us in thanking Lehrman for his contributions to Heritage and to our nation.
