Churchill: The Tresures of Winston Churchill, the Greatest Briton examines the life of one of one of the most revered Britons in history. Every facet is covered, from his birth at Blenheim Palace, his tumultuous early political life at Westminster, and his service on the front line during the First World War to his time in the political wilderness, his inspirational wartime leadership, and final years as grand old man of world politics. With 160 painstakingly researched photographs, and 16 removable facsimile documents sourced from the family archives at Churchill College, Cambridge, this book allows us to gain an insight into not only Churchill the outspoken, quick-witted public figure, but also Churchill the man: the loving husband and father, the enthusiastic painter, sportsman and even bricklayer. Removable items include: School Report from St. George's School Ascot, which states that young Winston's general conduct was "very bad - (he) is a constant trouble to everybody, and is always in some scrape or other"; Personal letters between Winston and Clementine in which they refer to each other by pet names - "sweet Amber Dog' and "Puss Cat", with little illustrations of each; Notes with hand annotations for his famous speech - "Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few."; and Iconic election poster featuring nothing more than a silhouette of a cigar-smoking churchill.
