Rudy Giuliani's favorite biographies of leaders

Did Giuliani really begin reading a biography of Churchill at 2:30 a.m. the night after the 9/11 attacks?

So he says.

Gripped as he was by the book, that volume is not even his favorite Churchill biography. That distinction belongs to Churchill: A Study in Greatness by Geoffrey Best, tops on Giuliani's list of his favorite five biographies of political leaders.

Too busy to read the entire book? The BBC has a brief account by Professor Best of Churchill's World War II leadership here.
