Details

Walter H. Thompson was Churchill's bodyguard from 1921 until 1936 and was brought back from retirement at the outbreak of war. Tom Hickman's authorised biography draws heavily on extracts from Thompson's own manuscript in which Thompson gives a unique insider's account of a number of occasions on which Churchill's life was put seriously at risk by terrorists, Hitler or his own recklessness. After the war, Thompson married one of Churchill's secretaries, and her recollections, as well as those of surviving family members, are interwoven to tell the revelatory inside story of life beside the Greatest Briton.
