About the Author

Piers Brendon is the author of The Dark Valley: A Panorama of the 1930s, Winston Churchill: A Brief Life, and The Decline and Fall of the British Empire. He is a former Keeper of the Churchill Archives Centre, a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. He lives in England.


From beak to tail feather and from flipper to fin, this is a book that will long be known, read, and savored.--James W. Muller, Chairman of the Board of Academic Advisers of the International Churchill Society
Brendon approaches a much-studied subject--Winston Churchill--from an unusual but rewarding angle. The great pleasure of this work lies in reading Churchill's animal-based metaphors and similes. Readers familiar with his life and times will relish Brendon's idiosyncratic, far-ranging approach to profiling this 'real British bulldog' and imperial 'lion rampant.
Brendon has compiled a book which is scholarly, original and beautifully written, and casts fresh light on an important and underestimated side of Churchill's protean character.--John Campbell, 'Finest Hour', the journal of the International Churchill Society
Engaging. An unquestionably unique look at the former prime minister. An affectionate study by a respected Churchill scholar.
