    Chasing Churchill by Celia Sandys is a lovingly crafted book about the importance of travel in her Grandfather Winston Churchill s life and career What sets it apart from the overcrowded field of Churchill portraits however, is that Sandys goes a step further and retraces her famous relatives footsteps Traveling first to Cuba and South Africa, she later recreates some of Winston s WWII journeys.If this book has a weakness, it s that the narrative does not always follow the chronology of Church Chasing Churchill by Celia Sandys is a lovingly crafted book about the importance of travel in her Grandfather Winston Churchill s life and career What sets it apart from the overcrowded field of Churchill portraits however, is that Sandys goes a step further and retraces her famous relatives footsteps Traveling first to Cuba and South Africa, she later recreates some of Winston s WWII journeys.If this book has a weakness, it s that the narrative does not always follow the chronology of Churchill s travels As a result the last 30% of the book got repetitive.I would recommend that anyone who reads this book should also see the companion PBS documentary

    This is a book for Churchill fans only, but, for them, a fun read The best anecdote is the recounting of a Mediteranean cruise the author took with her grandfather Churchill on Aristotle Onassis s yacht with Tina Onassis and Maria Callas along for the ride Also along for the ride was Churchill s pet budgie, which he apparently took with him everywhere after he finally retired from politics.

    An interesting and unique take on Churchill, benefitting from the author s familial relationship with him The personal touches and family photographs personalize this larger than life figure However, the decision to include information from the author s present day visits to the locales, on the whole is not a successful one Very little is added by remembrances of people who were children at the time of WSC s visit, and a great deal of fluidity in the narrative is lost by the occasional jump t An interesting and unique take on Churchill, benefitting from the author s familial relationship with him The personal touches and family photographs personalize this larger than life figure However, the decision to include information from the author s present day visits to the locales, on the whole is not a successful one Very little is added by remembrances of people who were children at the time of WSC s visit, and a great deal of fluidity in the narrative is lost by the occasional jump to the present day Otherwise the writing is felicitous and the subject matter interesting

    Good story of Sir Winston Churchill s grandaughter, Celia Sandys, as she retraces steps he took during the Boer War, World War II and later days as Prime Minister of Great Britain Great for history buffs and armchair travels fans.

  7. Keith Keith says:

    The book was interesting, well written, and Churchill is a great subject but this book seemed to be self serving written by his granddaughter and one sided It also seemed to try to justify even his smallest faults Otherwise, a good read.
