Description

American-born Phyllis Moir worked for Churchill on his visit to the USA in 1931. She leveraged this unique experience into a book that remains a fascinating, early insider account; one that was disapproved of by Churchill, his family and staff at the time. Today it is a very rare and valuable work.

This is a virtually mint copy of the First American edition, in an unclipped dust jacket. The contents are fine.
