Friends, rivals, confidants: for more than two decades, Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden worked closely together. But while one is revered as a great leader and national icon, the other is remembered as the architect of Britain's worst foreign policy failure.

Churchill and Eden tells the story of the relationship between two men who led Britain through war and peace. The narrative ranges from the sunny south of France to the deserts of Africa and the jungles of Vietnam, covering the eras of the Second World War, the decline of Britain's Empire and the coming of the Cold War – and reveals a new perspective on the lives and decision-making of two of the most well known political figures of the Twentieth Century.

I have to say that this is really good book and a pleasure to read. Although I have read quite a few books on Winston Churchill, I have read very few about Anthony Eden, this book is very clear and comprehensive in detail but not over baring with little detail. I enjoy reading books from David Charlwood, who is very detailed and comes across as a young writer, especially after reading this and the other book of his I have read, the excellent 1920 – A Year of Global Turmoil. I think I enjoy his writing because you’ll see his books written in little chapters that specifically get to the point and only that point of the chapter. The book really does show how well these got on, and how the personal of Eden should be as high as Churchill as they both worked well together on equally important matters. I should also add that there is a good bibliography in this book. And I suppose the best thing I can say about this book is that it has made me want to read more about Anthony Eden. Avery good book indeed, well worth reading, and may I say would make a good Christmas stocking filler.

UK Historian

A very interesting read and one of the most well-written historical books on the subject. In attempting to tell the story of these two great leaders, the author masterfully weaves together the most important pieces and keeps movement ongoing. Readers are left with real history and facts without being overwhelmed with the magnanimous amount of information that is available on both Churchill and Eden. Great book.

This is a relationship I knew little to nothing about. It was incredibly informative and I think this will definitively do well in the historical circles, especially those like me who enjoy Churchill books.
