Dinner With Churchill: Policy Making at the Dinner Table –
by Cita Stelzer

Paperback in good cond

“To Churchill, meals weren't just a matter of getting something to eat. They were social occasions which he used to cement alliances and sway opponents.” (The Wall Street Journal)

“These meals, and even white-linen picnics for generals in France after D-Day, are chronicled in Dinner With Churchill.” (The New York Times)

“A delightful and fascinating book.” (Andrew Roberts, author of The Storm of War)

“A delicious tribute to Churchill’s heroic appetite for wining, dining, and politicking.” (Ben Macintyre, author of Operation Mincemeat)

“A feast for foodies and history buffs alike, Dinner With Churchill offers a delicious portrait of the culinary tactics that helped Churchill end the global conflict that threatened to destroy everything he held dear.” (The Richmond TImes Dispatch)

An eloquent narrative of the great man's dinner-table diplomacy, this sumptuous volume is an intellectual treat for all admirers of Churchill.
A friend once said of Churchill “He is a man of simple tastes; he is quite easily satisfied with the best of everything.”
But dinners for Churchill were about more than good food, excellent champagnes, and Havana cigars. “Everything” included the opportunity to use the dinner table both as a stage on which to display his brilliant conversational talents and to argue for the many policies he espoused over a long life.

In this entertaining book, Stelzer draws on previously untapped material, diaries of guests, and a wide variety of other sources to tell of some of the key dinners at which Churchill presided before, during and after World War II. Please click here to ask a question
