Eminent Churchillians

A controversial account of the Churchill years by a bestselling historian.
‘The best sort of history – revealing, gossipy and acidulous’ OBSERVER

This highly praised book by the Wolfson History Prize-winning author of SALISBURY tackles six aspects of Churchilliana and uncovers a plethora of disturbing facts about wartime and post-war Britain.
His revelations include:

– The case for the impeachment of Lord Mountbatten

– The British establishment’s doubt about Churchill’s role after Dunkirk
– The appeasement of the trade unions in Churchill’s Indian summer
– The inside story of black immigration in the early 1950s
– The anti-Churchill stance adopted by the Royal Family in 1940

Reviews

Not since A J P Taylor gave his legendary lectures on the origins of the Second World War has an historical study given me such intellectual and aesthetic satisfaction
John Torode, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
An elegantly written, thought-provoking book...an essential reappraisal of British myths since 1939
THE TIMES
A book of quite exceptional quality...Roberts resembles Strachey in his iconoclasm, and in the brilliance of his writing
