Winston Churchill vs. the Spanish Flu

Andrew Roberts on Churchill vs. the Spanish Flu

Our latest episode features historian Andrew Roberts. Roberts is the author, among many other books, of Churchill: Walking with Destiny, a best-selling biography of the Prime Minister, as well as Leadership in War, on what we can learn from leaders like Napoleon, Nelson, Eisenhower, Thatcher, and many others. We spoke with Andrew about lessons from Churchill’s crisis leadership in World War II and his experience during pandemics — including his stint as Britain’s Secretary for War, which coincided with the savage Spanish Flu arriving in England.
