Recorded October 15, 2020
Winston Churchill had a lifelong fascination with secret intelligence, espionage, and special operations. His biographer Andrew Roberts, in a conversation with retired U.S. Army General David H. Petraeus, illuminates how the British prime minister’s interest and the knowledge he gained from it helped him win World War II. From codebreaking to spying to two personal adventures, Churchill was at the heart of Britain’s intelligence capability.
Andrew Roberts is Roger and Martha Mertz Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, Distinguished Lehrman Fellow at the New-York Historical Society, and the author of the international bestseller Churchill: Walking with Destiny.
General David H. Petraeus (U.S. Army, Retired) (moderator) commanded coalition forces during the Surges in both Iraq and Afghanistan and served as director of the CIA. He is now partner in the global investment firm KKR and chairman of the KKR Global Institute.
