Lady Williams recalls the great man from his return to office in 1951 to the end of his life. They tell of his humor and sense of fun, his eloquence and romanticism.

Churchill: Walking with Destiny
Introduction by Dr. Arnn: “Who has written a good biography of Churchill in manageable scale? One person. It’s a biography that can be relied on, that captures the parts of it: solemnity and fun, ceremony and adventure, aggressiveness and restraint, consistency and change. It’s a drama, a huge drama….And he’s prepared all his life to write it. Long ago I believed that someday this man will write a great book about Winston Churchill. Now he’s done it.”
