Summary
Late in life, Winston Churchill claimed that victory in the Second World War would have been "impossible' without the woman who stood by his side for fifty-seven turbulent years. Why, then, do we know so little about her? A long overdue tribute to this remarkably resilient woman, Clementine plunges us into the Churchills' vibrant and tumultuous private world. It reveals just how much Winston depended on his wife -- for solace and inspiration, and also for political advice. Clementine was a terrible mother, but you would be hard-pressed to find a more devoted and resourceful wife. -- Back cover
