“Recollections of the great man by a woman who worked for him throughout the crucial years from 1941 to 1945.” A truly charming memoir by Churchill’s top wartime Personal Secretary, Elizabeth (Layton) Nel, who signed this copy in ink on the title page: “Inscribed for Nick Zehnder with my very best wishes. Elizabeth Nel, Port Eilizabeth [South Africa] 1-9-95.”

This is a very good Ex-Library copy of the First English edition, in an unclipped dust jacket. It bears library numerals discreetly inked on the spine, which is edge-chipped, with fractional losses at the head and tail, else fine. The contents are fine as well, with ink-stamped library markings on the Copyright page only, and some scattered foxing.
