In Churchill's Shadow
David Cannadine has an appreciation for the odd things that have made Britain tick: the personalities and ideas that have bound together our historical experiences. In this work he takes a range of British icons, from Gilbert and Sullivan to Ian Fleming, to show the many strange ways in which Britain has built its sense of self. Above all, looming behind everything remains Winston Churchill. Britain, however much it may twist and turn, cannot shake off being in his shadow even today.
