In Churchill's Shadow



David Cannadine has an unrivalled appreciation for the odd things that have made Britain tick: the personalities and ideas that have bound together our historical experiences. In one of his most provocative and surprising books he takes a range of British icons ranging from Noel Coward to Stanley Baldwin and from Gilbert & Sullivan to Ian Fleming to show the many strange ways Britain has built its sense of self. Above all, looming behind everything remains Winston Churchill. Britain, howevermuch it may twist and turn, cannot shake off being 'Churchill's Country' even today.
