Churchill, The Supreme Survivor
This study of the health of the seemingly indomitable Winston Churchill by the eminent surgeon, Wyn Beasley, is a "must read" for those who want to learn more about the life of the greatest man of modern times.
It is the first serious study of Churchill's medical history over his entire life of nine decades, the earlier and rather unfortunate book by Lord Moran having concentrated on the final twenty-five years. It relates an incredible series of illnesses and injuries which might have proved fatal - not only to him but also to the British Empire and the cause of freedom.
"It is refreshing to have an account of Churchill that breaks new ground and provides a perspective that perhaps only a surgeon could offer."
- General Sir Peter de la Billiere
"A vivid account of Churchill's battle between his body and his spirit."
- Charles Moore, Daily Telegraph, London
"Each chapter - all of which are generously illustrated - takes a single decade of Churchill's life and details his many illnesses and accidents so that by the end of the book you realise that he was indeed the 'great survivor'".
- Sir Barry Jackson, Past President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in the Bulletin
