Churchill in Quotes celebrates the life
and wit of this iconic figure - combining archive photography with the
inspiring speeches, wry remarks and cutting comments he was known for.

Sir Winston
Churchill, statesman, orator and former Prime Minister was a man whose words gave
hope and inspiration to the British people, and many are as relevant today as
they were during the war years. Churchill's speeches were not always confined
to serious political rhetoric and motivation: his off-the-cuff quips and
comments displayed a wry wit and humour. This book is a celebration of an outstanding
figure in British history, presented in almost 200 photographs, hand-picked
from the vast archives of the Press Association, many of which have remained
unseen since they were first published in the newspapers and magazines of their
day.
