A delightful and illuminating journey through the early years of Winston Churchill, From Winston with Love and Kisses: The Young Churchill weaves together strands of Churchill's early writing, mature recollections and reflections on childhood, and the comments of the author, Churchill's granddaughter.
Together with a rich store of images and ephemera from the family archives, this book provides an enthralling composite view of the lonely and sickly little boy who survived on sheer tenacity to become one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century.
Lavishly illustrated throughout and reproducing in facsimile many of the young Winston's letters and early artistic efforts, this captivating book brings us an intimate portrait of Churchill's youth.
