Churchill's Bodyguard

Author(s): Tom Hickman

History

Walter H. Thompson was Churchill`s bodyguard from 1921 until 1945, being brought back from retirement at the outbreak of war.

Tom Hickman`s authorised biography draws heavily on extracts from a manuscript recently discovered by his great-niece, in which Thompson gives a unique insider`s account of a number of occasions on which Churchill`s life was put seriously at risk and his intervention was needed.

After the war, Thompson married one of Churchill`s secretaries, and her recollections, as well as those of surviving family members, are interwoven to tell the revelatory inside story of life beside the Greatest Briton.
