A fascinatingly detailed account of one of the most important years of Winston Churchill's life. -Anne de Courcy, author of The Viceroy's Daughters A brilliant portrayal of the triumphs and tribulations of Churchill's middle age. -Paul Addison, author of Churchill: The Unexpected Hero In 1921 Winston Churchill triumphed over political disaster and personal tragedy. He re-shaped the Middle East, pursued peace in Ireland, and laid the foundations of his future glory. Stafford has had the brilliant idea of focussing on this single, crucial year and he sheds dazzling new light on both the man and the epoch. -Piers Brendon, author of The Decline and Fall of The British Empire, 1781-1997 Vividly adds perspectives and colour to a busy yet little known year of Churchill's life that most biographies can only treat in monochrome. -David Lough, author of No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money A fascinating and fluent account of Churchill's efforts to win the peace and hold together the Empire. -Lawrence James, author of Churchill and Empire
