The medical history of Churchill has never been researched and presented meticulously before, as the authors have managed in this book. It is not only the definitive study but the only book to provide a comprehensive medical history, based on hard fact and diligent research.
Churchill faced a series of medical threats throughout his life and suffered from depression which he referred to as his ‘black dog’. He battled these conditions as pugnaciously as he addressed everything before him. The authors have managed not only to research and recount in fine detail but they have also managed to produce a very readable work.
