About the Author

David Lough studied history at Oxford University. After a career in finance, his first book was No More Champagne (Picador), a Wall Street Journal and The Times of London Best Biography of the Year. He lives in England.

Randolph Churchill is the great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill. After attending Harrow, Randolph served in the Royal Navy and subsequently attended Buckingham University. He is a Trustee of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, Honorary Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, Director of the Armed Services Charities Advisory Company, and Trustee of the Churchill Centre in both the United States and United Kingdom. A regular speaker at Churchill conferences and dinners, Randolph and his wife have four children and live close to Sir Winston's home at Chartwell in Kent.


Lough has collected all available correspondence between Winston and his mother, Jennie Churchill, from his childhood until the end of her life. With excellent explanations of the events involved, the author gives readers first-rate insight into the personalities of mother and son. A great resource for gaining a further understanding of these two outsized characters and their era.
Readers who enjoy piecing together history and filling in gaps from primary evidence, as well as historians and Churchill enthusiasts, will find much of interest.
Lough excels, providing us with just enough narrative, without taking over and distracting the reader from his subjects. He accompanies his text with excellent maps and uncommon photographs. Having David Lough as narrator is like having a skilled tutor, guiding us through the four-decade relationship between mother and son. He never falls short.
A surprising page-turner.
May become a classic. It will transform the way that Churchill is interpreted and understood.
Spicy reading in our own increasingly plutocratic times. Lough doggedly pursues the ins and outs of Churchill's finances.
David Lough succeeds beyond any reasonable expectation in making this unique chronicle of Winston Churchill fascinating.
