Anthony Montague Browne was a young official in the Foreign Office when in 1952 he was seconded to become Private Secretary to Sir Winston Churchill, who in 1951 had returned to Downing Street for his second term as Prime Minister. Apart from a brief return to the Foreign Office after The Prime Minsters's retirement in 1955, Montague Browne remained with Churchill - as adviser, amanuensis and companion - until Churchill's death in January 1965. As the final member of the private staff to have written his memoirs, Montague Browne adds new information about Churchill's activities and attitudes when out of power, most significantly during the Suez Crisis in 1956. Alonside its account of the final phase of Churchill's life, the book describes Britain's decline in the post-war decades.

From Library Journal:

Originally published in England in 1995, this book begins with the author's life before he went to work for Churchill and ends with a brief section on his life afterward. The main portion deals with the years between 1952, when Montague Browne became one of Churchhill's private secretaries, and the latter's death in 1965. The author gives both his own and Churchill's opinions of prominent people and events. In his later years, Churchill's mental and physical activity declined, and few people were as involved in his daily life as the author, who often made the final decisions about what statements should be made in Churchill's name. The author did not keep a diary, which makes some of this work sketchy, but as a different view of Churchill's last years this is sure to be popular with the vast numbers of people interested in the great British leader.?Marilyn Dailey, Natrona Cty.
