Abstract:

"Lord Moran became Churchill's doctor in 1940 and his devoted friend and confidant thereafter. Moran's interest in the effects of war on the individual informed his study of this titanic figure, both during the struggle with Nazi Germany and in the post war years when Churchill was battling against declining political influence and the handicaps of old age." "The period 1945-60 saw Churchill's defeat by Attlee, his re-election, the start of the Cold War and the handover of power to Eden.

Moran's is the only source to give Churchill's side of the story - the source historians rely upon. With the benefit of historical hindsight, this revised edition of Moran's candid and controversial diaries reveals these forgotten years, and the great man himself, in a new, contemporary light."--BOOK JACKET.
