Summary

Winston Churchill is possibly the most famous British leader, but a shroud of mystery still surrounds the Churchill clan. Myths propagated both by Winston's political enemies as well as the family members themselves persist to this day. Here, for the first time, authors John and Celia Lee cut through the rumors and lies and get to the truth about the life of the former Prime Minister and his relationship with his family.
