WATCH JOHN PANKOW READ “WITH WINSTON CHURCHILL AT THE FRONT” BY MAJOR ANDREW DEWAR GIBB
BOOK #34 IN OUR '40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS' VIDEO SERIES
Originally published pseudonymously in 1924, but rediscovered and reissued widely in 2016, WITH WINSTON CHURCHILL AT THE FRONT, by Major Andrew Dewar Gibb, is a drolly personal World War I memoir of Churchill in the trenches; up close and utterly inspiring.
It is Book #34 in our 40TH READINGS AT CHARTWELL BOOKSELLERS video series, as read by the vivacious veteran actor: JOHN PANKOW.
ANDREW DEWAR GIBB (1888-1974) was a Scottish barrister, professor and politician, who was the leader of the Scottish National Party from 1936 to 1940. During World War I he fought in France with the 6th Battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers and served as an adjutant to Winston Churchill during the period in 1916 when Churchill was their commanding officer.
JOHN PANKOW has played innumerable leading roles on and off-Broadway in plays that include Amadeus, Cloud Nine, The Slab Boys, The Iceman Cometh with Jason Robards, and Aristocrats. His film work ranges from To Live and Die in L.A. and The Secret of My Success, to A Stranger Among Us and Mortal Thoughts. For eight seasons he was Ira Buchman on the NBC sitcom Mad About You.
