The widely respected British historian and best-selling author Andrew Roberts came to the George H. W. Bush Presidential Center on January 29th to discuss his acclaimed new book Churchill: Walking with Destiny. Roberts was the first biographer granted access by Queen Elizabeth to read her late father King George VI’s diary records of Churchill’s weekly audiences with him during the Second World War. Roberts also discovered the verbatim reports of the War Cabinet meetings over which Churchill presided, which had never been used by any historian before. “So there is a lot more to say about Churchill,” Roberts argues.
History buffs of all ages — and especially devotees of the late Prime Minister — will find this hour-long presentation equal part engaging and enjoyable.
