Описание: "Sonia Purnell has at long last given Clementine Churchill the biography she deserves. Sensitive yet clear-eyed, "Clementine" tells the fascinating story of a complex woman struggling to maintain her own identity while serving as the conscience and principal adviser to one of the most important figures in history." Lynn Olson, bestselling author of "Citizens of London" A long-overdue tribute to the extraordinary woman behind Winston Churchill. By Winston Churchill s own admission, victory in the Second World War would have been impossible without her. Until now, however, the only existing biography of Churchill s wife, Clementine, was written by her daughter. Sonia Purnell finally gives Clementine her due with a deeply researched account that tells her life story, revealing how she was instrumental in softening FDR s initial dislike of her husband and paving the way for Britain s close relationship with America. It also provides a surprising account of her relationship with Eleanor Roosevelt and their differing approaches to the war effort. Born into impecunious aristocracy, the young Clementine was the target of cruel snobbery. Many wondered why Winston married her, but their marriage proved to be an exceptional partnership. Beautiful and intelligent, but driven by her own insecurities, she made his career her mission. Any real consideration of Winston Churchill is incomplete without an understanding of their relationship, and "Clementine" is both the first real biography of this remarkable woman and a fascinating look inside their private world."
Описание: The Greatest War Story of All Takes rank with All Quiet on the Western Front. She fulfilled in every respect the conditions which made the terrible profession of a spy dignified and honourable. Dwelling behind the German line within sound of cannon, she continually obtained and sent information of the highest importance to the British Intelligence Authorities. Her tale is a thrilling one the main description of her life and intrigues and adventures is undoubtedly authentic. I was unable to stop reading it until 4 a.m. Winston Churchill 1932With her medical studies cut short by the 1914 German invasion, her house burned down and her father arrested for suspected sharpshooting, it was perhaps unsurprising that the multi-lingual Marthe Mckenna (nee Cnockaert, codename Laura ) was recruited by British Intelligence. At the time she worked as a nurse tending the wounds of occupying soldiers, and as a waitress in her parents cafe in the Belgian border town of Roulers. I Was a Spy is McKenna s vivid narrative of these breath-taking adventures as she, aided by a gallant band of loyal locals, goes undercover to sabotage enemy phone lines, report suspicious activity or train movements, and even instigate an aerial attack on a planned visit by the Kaiser.This thrilling account goes on to explain how, in 1916, the young nurse was caught by the Germans placing dynamite in a disused sewer tunnel underneath an ammunition dump. She was sentenced to the firing squad and only survived due to the Iron Cross honour received as a result of her earlier medical service . Mckenna was later mentioned by Douglas Haig in British Despatches and was awarded the French and Belgian Orders of the Legion of Honour for her espionage work.REVIEWS Straight out of Boys' Own Paper I was reading stories like this in my comics in the 1950s, never quite able to believe that such things actually happened, and that such people actually really existed Books Monthly UK McKenna's style is a breathless mix of Celia Johnson crossed with Enid Blyton... she drives her narrative at a brisk clip and becomes an entertaining and rather endearing companion.The Independent UK This re-issue of a gripping tale of the wartime adventures of a legendary heroine, perhaps ranking alongside the legendary Violette Szabo, is one to be welcomed. Churchill was not the only one who could not stop reading this until 4am -Britain at War Written at an electric pace McKenna s is an unremitting adventure -All About History History of War Magazine recommends section Her tale is a thrilling one. The main description of her life and intrigues and adventures is undoubtedly authentic. I was unable to stop reading it until 4 a.m. The pages of this book are dramatically riddled with suspicion, fear and excruciating, life-and-death tension....fast-paced bit of remarkable reading.
