 About the Book 

I bought this souvenir-type book for a friend whos a Churchill fan, has read his series of memoirs. I had just visited Chartwell and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Churchill and his home life - he lived here with his family for 40 years.This book describes the property, its history, the changes made by the Churchills and its current state as a National Trust property. So it was a good summary, a review of what Id seen and provided more details of interest.Chapters:The Road to ChartwellTransforming ChartwellLife at ChartwellWarIndian SummerChurchill the WriterChurchill the PainterTour of the HouseThe GardenThere are also Plans of the House, Further Reading and a Family Tree.Since photography is not allowed inside the house, I was glad to see the excellent colour photographs in this book.
