Warlord (by Carlo D'Este)

By Blackstone Audio, Inc

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


WARLORD by Carlo D'Este (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

Warlord explores Churchill's strategies behind the major military campaigns of World War I and World War II—both his successes and failures—while also revealing his tumultuous relationships with his generals and other commanders.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio's Earphones® Award-winning narrator Tom Weiner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

RATING: 12+ for some mature biographical themes.


Carlo D'Este’s brilliant biography examines Winston Churchill through the prism of his military service as both a soldier and a warlord: a descendant of the Duke of Marlborough who, despite never having risen above the rank of lieutenant colonel, came eventually at age sixty-five to direct Britain's military campaigns as prime minister and defeated Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito for the democracies.

Even though Churchill became one of the towering political leaders of the twentieth century, his childhood ambition was to be a soldier. Warlord explores Churchill's strategies behind the major military campaigns of World War I and World War II—both his dazzling successes and disastrous failures—while also revealing his tumultuous relationships with his generals and other commanders, including Dwight D. Eisenhower.
