In retrospect, it seems difficult to imagine the stentorian figure of Sir Winston Churchill ever living in the shadow of his famous father, Lord Randolph Churchill. Yet the desire to be more than just 'Randolph's boy', allied to a relentless urge to be in the thick of things, meant that it was a political career to be forged far from dingy town halls and the elegant cocktail parties of the rich and powerful.
