To be sure, Winston Churchill was Britain's foremost Prime Minister with a peerless gift for oratory, but he was also a very capable bricklayer. We think we know Sir Winston, but there's always more, and so here Jacob Field documents some of the lesser known moments of his life, as well as intriguing facts about how he lived and worked, his friends and enemies, loves and hates. This collection of curios discusses how this plump infant earned the nickname "Skinny," then grew up to become a gifted rider, to escape from a POW prison during the second Boer War, and to invent the "belly band" around cigars.
