Votre note
This new edition of the candid writings of Churchill's doctor, Lord Moran, his devoted friend and confidant, covers the war years and contains material not previously revealed. The new extracts help to shed light on how the great man faced up to and absorbed the strain of events between 1940 and 1945, the tremendous burden of his responsibilities, and his extraordinary resolution. We hear of both weaknesses and strengths: his rages, his jokes and salty comments, his lapses of judgement, his occasional barbed remark and endearing playfulness. Lord Moran was with Churchill at the great wartime meetings and conferences and was able to record remarkable details of Roosevelt, Stalin and the whole cast of military and civilian leaders in the fight against Hitler.

Biographie de Lord Moran

Charles McMoran Wilson was created 1st Baron Moran of Manton in 1943. During the 1914-18 War he was awarded the MC during the Battle of the Somme and the Italian Silver Medal for Military Valour for a raid. He was for twenty-four years Dean of St Martin's Hospital Medical School. In 1945 he published his observations of men under the stress of war in The Anatomy of Courage. He became Winston Churchill's doctor in 1940, as the curtain was rising on one of the greatest dramas in our history, and from 1941 to 1950 he was also President of the Royal College of Physicians. Winston Churchill: the Struggle for Survival was first published in 1966, a year after Churchill's death. In his war memoirs, Winston Churchill called Lord Moran `a devoted and personal friend' to whose `unfailing care I probably owe my life'.
