Review: THE HAPPY WARRIOR by Clifford Makins

happy-warriorChristopher from Doolittle’s recently posted a review of The Happy Warrior:  The Life Story of Sir Winston Churchill, As Told Through Great Britain’s Eagle Comic of the 1950s by Clifford Makins.  Here’s a snippet:

The volume is primarily a compilation of comic-book style pages from the British boys magazine ‘Eagle’ from the 1950s. Pulled together into a single binding, ‘The Happy Warrior’ becomes a graphic-novel biography of Winston Churchill. This collection runs from his boyhood through adventures in India, Egypt, South Africa, the Western Front in WWI France, and British politics before spending the second half on his WWII leadership (leaving off his Cold War influences).
