Om Churchill Style

A look at the towering twentieth-century leader and his lifestyle that goes beyond the political and into the personal. Countless books have examined the public accomplishments of the man who led Britain in a desperate fight against the Nazis with a ferocity and focus that earned him the nickname ';the British Bulldog.' Churchill Style takes a different kind of look at this historic icondelving into the way he lived and the things he loved, from books to automobiles, as well as how he dressed, dined, and drank in his daily life. With numerous photographs, this unique volume explores Churchill's interests, hobbies, and vicesfrom his maddening oversight of the renovation of his country house, Chartwell, and the unusual styles of clothing he preferred, to the seemingly endless flow of cognac and champagne he demanded and his ability to enjoy any cigar, from the cheapest stogies to the most pristine Cubans. Churchill always knew how to live well, truly combining substance with style, and now you can get to know the man behind the legendfrom the top of his Homburg hat to the bottom of his velvet slippers. ';All readers will appreciate Singer's highly intelligent observations about how Churchill's style contributed to, and was ultimately an integral part of his brilliant career.' Gentleman's Gazette
