The Irrepressible Churchill
By

Rating
Undoubtedly one of the great orators of the twentieth century, Sir Winston Churchill is an iconic figure and Britain's most famous statesman. This new edition of a classic work records his remarkable military and political career and his extraordinary life both private and public, mainly in his own words, providing an invaluable record of Sir Winston's thoughts, opinions, wit and wisdom. This includes the little-known aside that perhaps best sums up his indefatigable character and wry sense of humour, which followed his rallying speech after the evacuation of the BEF at Dunkirk: 'We will fight them with the butt end of broken bottles because that's bloody well all we've got!'

About the Author

Kay Murphy Halle was an American writer, journalist, socialite and political campaigner. An intimate Churchill family friend, regular visitor to Chartwell, and favourite of Sir Winston's, she spent more than 30 years in frequent company with him. She is credited with persuading Congress to award Churchill honorary U.S. citizenship, an accolade that he considered his most prized public tribute. Kay Halle died in 1997 aged 93.

Reviews

*'A rich, well-researched compendium of Sir Winston's wit and wisdom which - unlike most imitations - is carefully attributed and organised for ease of reference.' Richard Langworth, The Churchill Society *'A book to brighten the dullest moments' The Times
