About the Author

Alan Watson is a broadcaster, author, High Steward of Cambridge University, former President of the Liberal Party, public relations consultant and Peer. An accomplished public speaker, presenter, campaigner and consultant, his fascination with Churchill has been lifelong. His enthusiasm for Britain at the interface of Churchill's three circles - Europe, America, and the English-speaking world - remains unmatched.


A fine and insightful tribute to my great-grandfather's political instincts and his courageous approach to difficult international matters. It also acts as a reminder of the need of vigilance and tenacity in defence of our hard-won freedoms. Although Churchill died over fifty years ago, the foundations of our current peace and freedom are drawn from those two speeches of 1946 -- Randolph Churchill Although they were attacked and denounced at the time, Winston Churchill's two great speeches of 1946 - delivered 4,700 miles away from each other - created the political architecture for the whole postwar period. To a very great degree, the geostrategic world we inhabit today sprung from the words Churchill spoke at Fulton, Missouri and Zurich, Switzerland. Alan Watson's scholarly, well-written and penetrating analysis shows how that came about -- Andrew Roberts A masterpiece. The manner in which Alan Watson has engaged in such detailed scholarship and the style and power in which he has brought the past to life is most impressive. -- Professor Ian White, Master of Jesus College Cambridge With this fascinating and meticulously researched book Alan Watson reminds us of Churchill's great influence on world affairs even after he left office in 1945. Churchill was exhilarated by preparing his Fulton and Zurich speeches, and the result is that their power and reach is still of huge relevance to us today. This book is well worth reading -- William Hague As far as I am aware the word 'prophet' has never been used to describe Winston Churchill, but in these two remarkable and and insightful speeches given in 1946 we see Churchill's extraordinary prescience and forward-looking leadership. We are in Alan Watson's debt for reminding us of those tumultuous times. -- Lord Carey of Clifton It is to the great merit of Lord Watson that in Churchill's Legacy he has convincingly argued that the free World as a whole owes a great debt of gratitude to these two seminal speeches in 1946, delivered by an indefatigable promoter of man's inalienable right to freedom from tyranny and war -- Thomas Kielinger Lord Watson has managed to capture an important bit of history in the most wonderful way. I am that bit the wiser -- Vice Admiral Johnstone, NATO Commander Maritime Forces This engaging, masterfully concise volume shows how Churchill, alarmed at Soviet incursions into Eastern Europe and frustrated by US reluctance to acknowledge the threat, shrugged off a devastating defeat at the polls to rally the free world -- Richard Nye Winston Churchill's speeches remind us how one man can turn the world around...A book for our times * Australian Financial Review * A fascinating account of the two celebrated speeches made by Winston Churchill in 1946 -- Giles Radice * The House Magazine *
