Description - Speaking for Themselves: The Personal Letters of Winston and Clementine Churchill by Sir Winston S. Churchill
This a collection of the correspondence between Sir Winston and Lady Clementine Churchill extending from their early days of courtship in 1908 to Winston Churchill's death in 1965. The letters serve both as a chronicle of their personal achievements and tragedies over the years and as a political and social history. In their own words they recount events such as the sinking of the Titanic, the abdication of King Edward VIII, the downfall of governments, the Depression, and the two world wars. Here are first-hand accounts from the battlefields in 1915, reflections on political triumphs and upsets, as well as domestic minutiae, foreign travel, revelations of social scandals and words of mutual support. Mary Soames complements the letters with explanatory notes, biographical details and her own personal recollections in the introduction.
