This book is the first in a 'Great Leaders' biography series by the publisher. The author is eminent British historian Robin Neillands. According to the author, "Churchill's life is as remarkable as the man himself - born in the High Victorian Age, going to the wars on horseback, fighting Afghan tribesmen with a sabre - and living into the era of the atomic bomb. He spanned an entire age, and provided what little it had of glory." The book advertises itself "as much a study of Winston Churchill's character as it is a look at the great events of his life".

The Private Lives of Winston Churchill was intended to be a sort of tell-all, behind the scenes look at the life of Churchill. According to the dust jacket the book will reveal "the high costs of the family's accomplishments and the suffering behind the seemingly glamorous exploits." Bibliographer Curt Zoller dismisses the book as pure sensationalism, writing that it "purports to explain why Churchill's children, except for Mary, turned out so bad. A vitriolic attack, full of misquotes and out-of-context excerpts, that demonstrates the depths to which Churchillophobia can sink. Cannot be taken seriously." Photos of Churchill's friends and family accompany the text. Condition is fine in a fine dust jacket. The binding is black cloth over speckled, tan paper covered boards.

Item Description: By Martin Gilbert, Free Press, New York, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. This book tells "the intensely human story of Winston Churchill's profound connection to America, a relationship that resulted in an Anglo-American alliance that has stood at the center of international relations for more than a century." This book is authored by Churchill's Official Biographer and draws upon his knowledge of Churchill, which is unsurpassed. In 1962, at the age of 25, Martin Gilbert joined Churchill's biography team, then led by Churchill's son Randolph. Of what became his life's work, Gilbert says: "I'd thought I'd last four or five months." Instead, when Randolph died in 1968 with only two of the eight volumes completed, Gilbert took over, committing the substantial portion of his scholarship and life's work to documenting, comprehending, and communicating what Gilbert calls the "remarkable and versatile life" of Winston Churchill. Churchill's Official Biography now includes eight published main text volumes and sixteen document volumes, with further document volumes still in progress. For those wishing to benefit from Martin Gilbert's unparalleled expertise, but wishing to concentrate on the Anglo-American alliance and not willing to undertake the massive Official Biography, here is the single volume for you. This is the U.S. first edition, fine in a fine dust jacket. The binding is square, clean, and tight. The contents are immaculate with no previous ownership marks, no spotting, and bright white page edges. The dust jacket is crisp, clean, bright, and complete with no losses or tears.

Item Description: Weidenfeld & Nicholson, New York, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First edition. First edition. This book contains the memoirs of Winston S. Churchill (1940-2010), the grandson of the great statesman and writer. Like his namesake grandfather, the author lived a life of adventure and public service, serving first as a journalist and war correspondent, most notably in the middle east, and later serving as Member of Parliament. Through an intimate family perspective and hitherto unpublished letters, Memories and Adventures paints a unique picture of both the author and his great forebears. The author recounts his experiences as an adventure-seeking young man covering conflicts in Borneo, the Congo and Yemen with such tales as his account of his twenty-thousand mile flight around Africa in a single engine plane. Condition is as new, fine in a fine dust jacket. The sole outward imperfection is a small dent on the lower right spine and a slightly flawed front lower corner. Otherwise, the remaining corners are sharp. The paper covered binding is tight and square with bright gilding and immaculately clean front and rear covers. The contents are bright, clean, and have no spotting or traces of previous ownership. The sole marking is the erasure of a previous seller's penciled pricing, still slightly visible. The dust jacket is unclipped, bright, and clean with no discernible faults. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller B863.
