David Lough

Churchill and Trumps: birds of a feather?

It takes some chutzpah to compare two holders of the world’s greatest offices, but David Lough, a former banker with a first-class degree in history from Oxford, fearlessly examines the private records of Winston Churchill and Donald Trump before each became a national leader – and finds surprising similarities. He questions the assumption that would-be leaders should carry ‘no skeletons in the cupboard’, and asks what are the qualities that mark a potentially great crisis leader.
