Sir Winston Churchill was recently voted No. 1 in the top 100 Britons of all time by a nationwide poll of over a million voters. The epitome of strength, stubbornness and the British bulldog, his inspirational leadership helped win the Second World War, and his parliamentary career ensured that he was responsible for many of the momentous decisions which helped shape this ‘sceptred isle’.
They say that behind every great man, there is a great woman. Was this true in Churchill’s case? What of Clementine, his wife for 56 years? Did he bully her like he did so many other people? Was he as grumpy and irascible at home as he often was in the House of Commons? Did Clem have any influence on him at all or was she the ‘little lady at home’?
All these questions will be answered, and many more, in Liz Grand’s superb, moving, sensitive and informative portrayal of Clementine Churchill
“My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me.” Winston Churchill
