Few have matched Winston Churchill's cunning or force of will. Few have seen the equal of his audacity on the battlefield or the determination with which he strove toward his own ideal of greatness. At the height of his power, he seemed to embody the ideals of the empire he helped sustain: valor, pride, and above all, tradition. His sense of personal destiny was rooted deeply in the legacy of his birthright, the heritage of his family, and the awesome responsibility of being born Churchill. In The Private Lives of Winston Churchill, John Pearson takes us behind the myth of Churchill and deep into the psychology of a dynasty that some have called the most complicated Anglo-American family of this century. In doing so, he reveals, in rich portraits, some of the family's greatest, most charismatic, and most deeply troubled members and shows us the real, private Winston Churchill. Here was a man obsessed--with himself and his dreams of glory. Yet, at the same time, he was haunted by strange anxieties and recurring depressions, by the memory of his mother, Jennie, the Brooklyn-born society beauty who counted England's most influential men among her circle of lovers, and by his father, Lord Randolph, whose extraordinary political rise was matched only by his speedy, tragic downfall. John Pearson shows how Churchill's parents and the towering achievements of his ancestor, the first great Duke of Marlborough, dominated Winston's heart and mind--just as he himself would come to dominate the fates of his own wife, son, and daughters. The Private Lives of Winston Churchill is a family saga played out against the great events and darkest hours of England's history--the world wars, the political intrigues of Parliament, the scandals that kept the Churchills in the columns, and the momentous decisions that kept them in the headlines. With Winston at the center, Pearson travels through the generations, revealing the high costs of the family's accomplishments and the suffering behind the seemingly glamorous exploits. Never before have the Churchills been observed so closely or so truly. John Pearson brings them, and their friends, lovers, and rivals, to life once more6973ocn019777831book19890.21Churchill, Winston SMemories and adventuresBiographyThe grandson of Sir Winston Churchill describes memories and adventures of childhood5468ocn000227751book19660.26Rowse, A.

At a time when most marriages were made for money and position, Sarah Jennings and John Churchill married for love. This drama follows them from their budding romance in the bawdy court of King Charles II through five decades and five monarchs from the tumultuous House of Stuart3552ocn001278550book19620.33Churchill, John SpencerA Churchill canvas3363ocn003546961book19770.25Watney, JohnThe Churchills : portrait of a great familyBiographyGenealogy3125ocn719730516book20080.16Lovell, Mary SThe Churchills : a family at the heart of history--from the Duke of Marlborough to Winston ChurchillBiographyFrom the First Duke of Marlborough - soldier of genius, restless empire-builder and cuckolder of Charles II - onwards, the Churchills have been politicians, gamblers and profligates, heroes and womanisers. The Churchills is a richly layered portrait of an extraordinary set of men and women - grandly ambitious, regularly impecunious, impulsive, arrogant and brave. And towering above the Churchill clan is the figure of Winston - his failures and his triumphs shown in a new and revealing context - ultimately the 'greatest Briton'+-+17378216852895ocn003975350book19580.63Rowse, A.

Blenheim Palace is one of the most important buildings in Europe, and the only palace in England that is still lived in as a family home. Yet controversy and conflict seethed around the Palace from its very start, thanks to two strong-minded women: Sarah, the wilful first Duchess, who wanted a home fit for a hero, and Queen Anne, who envisaged a glorious monument to England herself and a palace to rival Versailles. As a palace and monument, Blenheim is spectacularly successful. It is one of the finest examples of English Baroque architecture, decorated and furnished to an equally lavish standard, housing works of art from all over Europe. Blenheim, which attracts around half a million visitors from all over the world each year, is one of Britain's most magnificent houses - as George III enviously remarked 'we have nothing to equal this'+-+75927329352514ocn011622633book19840.24Montgomery-Massingberd, HughBlenheim revisited : the Spencer-Churchills and their palaceHistory2115ocn053093039visu19960.19The ChurchillsBiographyGenealogyDetails the history of the Churchill family+-+12660284061702ocn014818588book19840.50Green, David BrontèˆThe Churchills of BlenheimBiography1604ocn026674592book19910.26Pearson, JohnCitadel of the heart : Winston and the Churchill dynastyBiography1064ocn025413826book19890.24Fowler, MarianBlenheim : biography of a palaceHistoryDonated Nov/02+-+4587158485Fri Feb 13 11:03:18 EST 2015batch27736
