Dinner with Churchill

There are a plethora of books about Churchill. Does Dinner with Churchill by Cita Stelzer add anything important?

The answer is emphatically 'Yes'.  This is an excellent study of how the great man used dinner parties to persuade, impress and pick the brains of diplomats and politicians. The book is especially interesting about Churchill's war conferences with Stalin and Roosevelt.

Don't read Dinner with Churchill when you are hungry, however! The descriptions of Pol Rogers champagne, caviar, fillets of sole and succulent roasts might make you too envious
