Description

Winston Churchill is possibly the most famous British leader, but a shroud of mystery still surrounds the Churchill clan. Myths propigated both by Wintson'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. Through their unique access to the private papers of the Churchill family, the Lees have made some incredbile and surprising new discoveries, including: - Winston's mother systematically robbed both her sons of their rightful inheritance - Winston's bestselling autobiography, My Early Life is a carefully crafted myth that has colored every subsequent book about him - Lord Randolph did not die of syphilis; this was a political slur - Winston was not an illegitimate child, as many have claimed; he was just premature at birth - Winston was sustained through life by a loving and resilient brother, who had just as promising career in the military before having to give it up for the sake of his family's financial security
