Illustrated with photographs from the private family album, this book follows in the footsteps of some of Sir Winston Churchill's famous trips to the four corners of the world, by his granddaughter Celia Sandys. She visits South Africa, Morocco, France, the USA amongst others - and recounts how Sir Winston's trips not only changed the course of world history, but helped to shape the man who has come to be known as 'our Greatest Briton'.
Celia Sandys is an internationally recognized author, speaker and television presenter on the subject of her grandfather, Sir Winston Churchill. She is now organizing and leading a series of tours retracing Churchill's footsteps around the world.
‘This excellent book shows how all-consuming was Churchill’s lust for fame, glory and medals... A well- researched and compelling adventure story, this well written, fast-moving narrative is a fine portrait of a young man in a hurry, albeit one who cuts corners to reach his glorious destination.’ Andrew Roberts.
