Signed by the author on the title page. Illustrated with B&W photographs. First in this edition. From September 1950, when Churchill was leader of the Opposition, to his death in 1965, Edmund Murray was the statesman’s constant attendant. Assigned by Scotland Yard as personal protector of Winston Churchill, he followed ‘the Boss’ through the culmination of an unparalleled political career. Whether on business or for pleasure, from the casinos of Monte Carlo to the White House in Washington, Edmund Murray accompanied Churchill on his travels. Over the years together they became more than just policeman and politician — they became firm friends. Edmund Murray has written a witty and candid account of an extraordinary life, both before and during his time with Churchill.
