あらすじ・解説

This is an engaging and original account of 1921, a pivotal year for Winston Churchill that had a lasting impact on his political and personal legacy.

After the tragic consequences of his involvement in the catastrophic Dardanelles Campaign of World War I, Churchill’s political career seemed over. He was widely regarded as little more than a bombastic and unpredictable buccaneer until, in 1921, an unexpected inheritance heralded a series of events that laid the foundations for his future success. 

Renowned Churchill scholar David Stafford delves into the statesman’s life in 1921, the year in which his political career revived. From his political negotiations in the Anglo-Irish treaty that created the Irish Free State to his tumultuous relationship with his “wild cousin” Clare Sheridan, sculptor of Lenin and subject of an MI5 investigation, this broad account explores the nuances of both Churchill’s private and public lives. This is an engaging portrait of this overlooked yet pivotal year in the great man’s life.

Wonderfully insightful in a new way

David Stafford focuses on a pivotal year for Churchill, pivotal in political achievements, the contemplated change of parties, in his personal finances, and in his personal life. Through it all, you learn much more of his family life, the wider circle of his siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles, as well as his mother. He begins his pursuit of painting with a marvellous passion, and sadly gives up polo. You also learn that people were beginning to see his true character, and could see his eventual rise to the top.

Fascinating - One Year in the Life of Winston Churchill

A thorough explanation of just one year in the extraordinary life of a man who shaped a century of world events. Mr Stanford weaves great detail and insights to further my understanding of WC. What was overcome and how WC experiences from Gallipoli, PostVersaillesTreaty-Middle East, Russian Revolution, Irish Home Rule, along with many the robust Family/Friend relationships made for the right man at the right time some twenty years later (1940) and if only - a hundred years later (2021) What a year it was and what an enjoyable work of non-fiction. A must for devotees of Winston Churchill.
