Author Andrew Roberts speaks about the multiple times Winston Churchill had nearly died during his presentation of “The Wartime Leadership of Winston Churchill” at a John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute lecture Wednesday night at The Globe Theater. Roberts is the bestselling author of “Churchill: Walking with Destiny” which The New York Times said, "All told, it must surely be the best single-volume biography of Churchill yet written." Roberts is a visiting professor in the war studies department at King’s College in London and the Lehrman Institute Lecturer at the New York Historical Society.
