Emma Soames – Mary Churchill’s War – The Wartime Diaries of Churchill’s Youngest Daughter edited by her daughter
Mary Churchill’s diaries provide a unique, front-row view of the great events of war, as well as exchanges and intimate moments with her father. They reveal an impulsive spirited writer free of self-censorship or nostalgia. In 1939, at seventeen, Mary found herself in an extraordinary position and time: the outbreak of WWII and her father, Winston Churchill, appointed Prime Minister within months.
