First Lady: The Life and Wars of Clementine Churchill by Sonia Purnell

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqFzdLAlZPQ

Bridget Osborne spoke to Sonia Purnell, the author of ‘First Lady: The Life and Wars of Clementine Churchill’, being published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Winston Churchill’s death (or 70th anniversary of VE Day or 75th anniversary of Churchill becoming Prime Minister – take your pick!)

Without Winston Churchill’s inspiring leadership Britain could not have survived its darkest hour and repelled the Nazi menace. Without his wife Clementine, however, he might never have become Prime Minister. By his own admission, the Second World War would have been ‘impossible without her’. Yet Clementine Churchill seems to have been airbrushed out of history. One official biography of Churchill makes not one single mention of her.

Sonia Purnell (journalist and serial biographer – she’s written one on Boris Johnson too) has had unique access to members of the family – the papers of their son Randolph’s wife Pamela Harriman for example – and to some of their staff. With her exhaustive research she has produced a book which not only sets the record straight but is a thoroughly good read. She illustrates how Clementine was Winston’s emotional rock and his most trusted confidante involved in some of the most crucial decisions of war, exerting an influence over her husband and the Government that would appear scandalous to modern eyes.

CLEMENTINE:" Sonia Purnell at Chartwell Booksellers (2016)

On March 10, 2016, Chartwell Booksellers formally celebrated Clementine Churchill's April 1 birthday three weeks early with an evening in conversation with biographer Sonia Purnell about her new book, "CLEMENTINE: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill."

From the personal and political upheavals of the Great War, through the Churchills’ ‘wilderness years’ in the 1930s, to Clementine’s desperate efforts to preserve her husband’s health during the struggle against Hitler, this is the inspiring but often ignored story of one of the most important women in modern history.

Without Churchill’s inspiring leadership Britain could not have survived its darkest hour and repelled the Nazi menace. Without his wife Clementine, however, he might never have become Prime Minister. By his own admission, the Second World War would have been ‘impossible without her’. Clementine was Winston’s emotional rock and his most trusted confidante; not only was she involved in some of the most crucial decisions of war, but she exerted an influence over her husband and the Government that would appear scandalous to modern eyes. Yet her ability to charm Britain’s allies and her humanitarian efforts on the Home Front earned her deep respect, both behind closed doors in Whitehall and among the population at large.

That Clementine should become Britain’s ‘First Lady’ was by no means pre-ordained. Born into impecunious aristocracy, her childhood was far from gilded. Her mother was a serial adulteress and gambler, who spent many years uprooting her children to escape the clutches of their erstwhile father, and by the time Clementine entered polite society she had become the target of cruel snobbery and rumours about her parentage. In Winston, however, she discovered a partner as emotionally insecure as herself, and in his career she found her mission. Her dedication to his cause may have had tragic consequences for their children, but theirs was a marriage that changed the course of history.  Now, acclaimed biographer Sonia Purnell explores the peculiar dynamics of this fascinating union

Clementine Churchill

When Clementine, Lady Spencer-Churchill died in 1977, aged 92, she had become a much-loved and iconic figure to the British public. In spite of being instantly recognisable as the seemingly serene, cool and detached wife of Winston Churchill, she had nonetheless shunned publicity throughout her life. In this fully updated, award-winning biography, her daughter Mary Soames throws new light on her mother, writing with affection and candour of Clementine's fifty-seven-year marriage to Winston, her strongly held political views and a life that spanned many of the major events of the twentieth century.

Clementine Churchill was the perfect wife for Winston. For the years of their marriage she supported him through the triumphs, disasters and tensions that ruled his public and private life. As a shy, passionate and highly-strung woman, Clementine's self-control was constantly tested to the utmost by the turmoil of public life and in the no less harrowing family crises and the ever-present financial anxieties.

When they married in 1908, Winston was already a Member of Parliament, and thereafter their life was played out mostly in front of the nation and the world. Winston always trusted Clementine completely and she became his valuable counsellor and companion. He invariably wanted her opinion - but did not always take her advice. She believed in him unreservedly, and in his destiny.

When first published in 1979, CLEMENTINE CHURCHILL won the Yorkshire Post Prize for Best First Work and a Wolfson Prize for History. This major revision makes full use of a wealth of new, intrinsically personal material that has come to light since then and elaborates further on many of the issues raised in the original edition.
