There is generally no dispute that Winston Churchill is most probably the most admired political figures of all time. Like many notable historic figures, Churchill had a life that was so large that it has become hard to separate fact from fiction. Author, Richard M. Langworth examines some of the more popular stories and rumors that have become a part of the Churchill narrative. Backed by an extensive bibliography, Langworth is quick to debunk a number of legends and puts many misquoted axioms back into context.
Conspiracy theories have always surrounded Winston Churchill and, as Langworth points out, the internet has fostered some of the more ridiculous speculations. This well-researched book includes numerous conversations and correspondence with Churchill family and acquaintances. Complete with photographs and illustrations, this is not only a key resource for Churchill scholars, it will appeal to the casual reader.
