Churchill’s Shadow

Wednesday 6 October
Lord Leycester Hospital

The man, the contradictions, the legacy.

A critical, but fair, political biography of Churchill that focusses on the crucial moments in his life and career that help us understand the man in his many contradictions.

Geoffrey Wheatcroft takes a radically different approach to other hagiographies of Churchill. This is a biography that doesn’t just tell the story of Churchill's life but the equally fascinating story of his legacy, exploring how he was viewed by contemporaries and those who came after.

Stimulating, erudite and above all entertaining.
