From the cover: “In this fully illustrated book to accompany the TW1/Carlton television programme, we are drawn effortlessly into the life of Sir Winston Churchill. From his birth at Blenheim Palace to his tumultuous political life in the corridors of Westminster, Celia Sandys is uniquely placed to examine the life of one of the most respected Britons in history. As Churchill’s granddaughter, she has unrivalled access to original documents and first-hand testimony from people who knew and worked with her grandfather.

This intimate and accessible guide to the life of Winston Churchill covers his years as a schoolboy, soldier, journalist, writer and Statesman. Each period of his long political career is presented in rich detail, including his time as Home Secretary, his tenure as First Lord of the Admiralty and eventually, after political exile, his triumphant return to power as one of the great wartime leaders.

With over 100 illustrations, references to key people and places, a family tree, timeline of events and bibliography, this is the essential work on the life of Sir Winston Churchill.”
