Young Titan: the making of Winston ChurchillIt’s the 50th anniversary of the death of Winston Churchill today

Churchill was a Nobel literature laureate himself and his work included a novel, two biographies, three volumes of memoirs, and several histories. The Nobel Prize came in 1953 “for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values”.

Two of his most famous works, published after his first premiership brought his international fame to new heights, were his six-volume memoir The Second World War and A History of the English-Speaking Peoples; a four-volume history covering the period from Caesar’s invasions of Britain (55 BC) to the beginning of the First World War (1914).

Our range of books both by him, fiction and non fiction about his life, family, art and times is quite extensive.
