The Private Lives of Winston Churchill, Paperback / softback Book

The Private Lives of Winston Churchill Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The first major biography of Winston Churchill to focus on his inner life and psychology'An extraordinary biography...Pearson...has a sensitive pen, matching the wit of his subject, and shows perceptive intuition towards the delicate relationships between the members of the Churchill family and their assorted spouses and lovers.' International Journal on World PeaceHe was a lion of a man who helped shape the course of this century with his relentless ambition and fierce political instincts.

Few have matched Winston Churchill's cunning or force of will.

Few have seen the equal of his audacity on the battlefield or the determination with which he strove toward his own ideal of greatness. At the height of his power, he seemed to embody the ideals of the empire he helped sustain: valor, pride, and above all, tradition.

His sense of personal destiny was rooted deeply in the legacy of his birth-right, the heritage of his family, and the awesome responsibility of being born Churchill. In The Private Lives of Winston Churchill, first published in 1991, John Pearson takes us behind the myth of Churchill and deep into the psychology of a dynasty that some have called the most complicated Anglo-American family of this century.

In doing so, he reveals, in rich portraits, some of the family's greatest, most charismatic, and most deeply troubled members and shows us the real, private Winston Churchill.
