About this product
- DescriptionThrough the documents in these pages, Martin Gilbert takes the reader on a fascinating journey, covering a wide range of domestic and international problems. Churchill s vivid personality is evident as each controversy unfolds traced through private letters and secret Cabinet records. Martin Gilbert s explanatory tes, never obtrusive, illuminate both the individuals and the events of nineteen dramatic months.Covering every aspect of Churchill s life when he was successively Secretary of State for War and Secretary of State for the Colonies, Martin Gilbert has also drawn material from the Churchill Papers, w at Churchill College, Cambridge, and from many other archival sources, both private and public.For Churchill, this period was dominated by the search for peace and reconciliation in Ireland, the establishment of a Jewish National Home in Palestine, the intensification of conflict with Turkey, and the political crisis that ended the peacetime coalition and Churchill s own ministerial career. On a personal level, the death of his mother and his young daughter Marigold was a time of great sadness and reflection. Clementine Churchill was an ever-present source of comfort and advice. And the purchase of a house in the Kent countryside Chartwell opened up new vistas.
