Praise for Nursing Churchill:
'These letters are of genuine historical importance to anyone interested in Churchill and the Second World War. They provide a fascinating, and occasionally moving, account of wartime Britain. Supported by the fine scholarship of the author, this book reminds us of the good-nature and humanity of the Greatest Briton, even while he was under unimaginable stress and a life-threatening illness. I heartily recommend it.' Andrew Roberts, author of The Storm of War
