As much as any major figure of the twentieth century, Winston Churchill is associated with the places he lived—particularly Blenheim Palace, where he was born and grew up, and Chartwell, in Kent, where he lived for more than forty years before and after leading Britain through World War II. Stefan Buczacki tells the story of Churchill’s life through a close examination of his homes and, in particular, the gardens he cultivated and enjoyed there. Gardening expert Buczacki offers here the fruits of extensive research into Churchill’s homes, and the result shows a new side of him—that of a man steeped in Victorian values who knew the importance of home and who looked after his personal staff and behaved with utmost integrity and honesty in all his business dealings.
