Lessons from Churchill for the Contemporary Age
Lessons from Churchill for the Contemporary Age
8th January 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Since the last major biography of Churchill, forty-one sets of papers have been deposited at the Churchill Archives, and The Queen has allowed Dr. Andrew Roberts to be the first Churchill biographer to read her late father King George VI’s diary records of Churchill’s weekly audiences with him during the Second World War. He also discovered the verbatim reports of the War Cabinet meetings over which he presided, which had never been used by any historian before, and he worked on Churchill’s children’s papers by kind permission of the Churchill family, some of which are closed to other researchers. So there is a lot more to say about Churchill, and on 8th of January, Dr. Andrew Roberts will be saying it to an exclusive meeting of the Henry Jackson Society.
The Henry Jackson Society is pleased to invite you to join Dr. Andrew Roberts in a fascinating discussion about the lessons from Churchill for the contemporary age.

He is a Trustee of the International Churchill Society, the Margaret Thatcher Archive Trust and the National Portrait Gallery. He is also the Roger and Martha Mertz Visiting Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
