Without Winston Churchill’s inspiring leadership Britain could not have survived its darkest hour. Without his wife Clementine, however, he might never have become Prime Minister. By his own admission, the Second World War would have been ‘impossible without her’.
Clementine was Winston's emotional rock and his most trusted confidante; not only was she involved in some of the most crucial decisions of war, but she exerted an influence over her husband and the Government that would appear scandalous to modern eyes. Sonia Purnell explores the peculiar dynamics of this fascinating but often ignored partnership as she presents the inspiring story of one of the most important women in modern history.
Held in celebration of the 75th anniversary of Winston Churchill becoming Prime Minister and the 70th anniversary of VE Day.
