Churchill: Walking with Destiny

Setup

Historian Andrew Roberts examines Churchill's description of becoming prime minister in May 1940: "I felt as if I were walking with destiny and that all my past life had been but a preparation for this hour and for this trial.” The trial, of course, was an existential one for Britain, but Churchill’s career — and his confidence — helped lead the nation and the Allies through a global conflagration. Robert’s insight, as well as his access to previously hidden correspondence, will give attendees a richer picture of this important and occasionally enigmatic figure. Stick around after the event for a book signing with Andrew Roberts.
