Synopsis:
It was Winston Churchill's destiny to personify the spirit of Britain in time of war. Indomitable and defiant, by sheer force of personality he made the nation share his own faith in its survival. The achievements of his finest hour have earned him a lasting place in history. It could be said that he was born to greatness, for he came into the world at Blenheim Palace, bestowed by a grateful nation on another national hero - his direct ancestor John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough. For two centuries the great dukes descendants had squandered their talents in reckless fashion, until the dormant family genius revived in Winstons father.
He married a tempestuous and beautiful American and they passed on their mixture of vaulting ambition and rash extravagance to new generations of Churchills. Drawing on Winstons own letters and memoirs, family archives, and on the reminiscences of his close relations and allies, "The Churchills" strips away the myths and misconceptions about Winston Churchill and his family over three generations.
