Churchill’s Bestiary: His Life Through Animals
Winston Churchill is one of the most multi-faceted figures of recent history. From powerbroker to prime minister, he also had a lifelong love of animals, including not just the usual household pets but his own lion and leopard, and a budgerigar which drank out of his whisky glass. Piers Brendon, renowned historian of Europe and Empire and the former Keeper of the Churchill Archives, has mined significant unpublished material to reveal another aspect of Churchill’s maverick genius. Sure to be compelling.
