Hitler's secret weapons, including Eva Brown, were as dust compared to the value to Winnie of Clemmy and the entire British Empire. She grounded him, kicked him up the jacksie when necessary, picked him up and dusted him down on many occasion and was totally indispensable when the "black dog" called ( depression ). "'Speaking for Themselves' provides a rare insight into Winston Churchill's extraordinary career, the central role he played, and the world figures he met, in over half a century of turbulent history. Clementines interest in politics was almost as intense as his, and her political instincts acute. Here, therefore, are Winston and Clementine's vividly expressed reactions to the social reforms of the Edwardian era, the agitations of the Suffragettes, the Abdication Crisis, the early disasters and then the long-awaited victories of the Second World and the electoral defeat of 1945. But here also are the domestic minutiae, society gossip, financial anxieties and minor quarrels, nicknames, private jokes and endearments." ( front flyleaf )
