Description

This engaging biography invites readers to dinner with Winston Churchill and his political guests in the years surrounding WWII.
A friend once said of Winston Churchill: "He is a man of simple tastes; he is quite easily satisfied with the best of everything." But for Churchill, dinners were about more than good food, excellent champagnes, and Havana cigars. "Everything" included the opportunity to use the table both as a stage on which to display his brilliant conversational talents and as an intimate setting in which to glean gossip and diplomatic insights and to argue for the many policies he espoused over his long political career.

In this riveting, informative, and entertaining account, Cita Stelzer draws on previously untapped material, diaries of guests, and a wide variety of other sources to tell of some of the key dinners at which Churchill presided before, during, and after World War II.

An "acutely revealing" and eloquent look at one of Great Britain's most impactful prime ministers, Dinner with Churchill offers delicious new insights into the food, cocktails, and conversations that shaped history (The Times Literary Supplement).
