The Wit & Wisdom of Winston Churchill


RRP: £6.99

ISBN: 978191620294

A 136-page, soft-cover book (105 mm x 148 mm) 

Winston Churchill was not just the greatest statesman of the 20th century, he was also its wisest and wittiest. The proof is in this outstanding collection of examples of the great man’s legendary way with words, from withering putdowns of his fellow politicians to the uplifting turns of phrase with which he decorated his most famous speeches. Spanning much of Churchill’s momentous career, these pages positively sparkle with the voice and personality of this extraordinary man.

Puckish, pugnacious and often downright rude, Churchill’s barbed eloquence could reduce his opponents to gibbering wrecks and his friends to convulsions, yet he was also a master at harnessing the English language to motivate and persuade. Gathered here are scores of priceless demonstrations of how he ‘marshalled the English language and sent it into battle’, as President John F. Kennedy once put it. Whether paying heartfelt tribute to the Few who won the Battle of Britain or likening the post-war divisions in Europe to an Iron Curtain falling, Churchill’s words not only had contemporary currency but were destined for immortality.

Rich in uniquely Churchillian insight, THE WIT AND WISDOM OF WINSTON CHURCHILL offers inspiration and delight in every chapter.
