|'Winston and Jack - The Churchill Brothers' by Celia and John Lee|
Published by Palgrave in the US"Winston and Jack - The Churchill Brothers" is the story of the Churchill family; Lord Randolph, Jennie (née Jerome), Winston and John (Jack). Winston Churchill's little known brother Jack has been fully integrated into the family history for the first time. Jack was the brighter of the two brothers, frequently top of his class at school and was Lord Randolph's favourite son.
Whilst Winston would surge to world prominence as wartime leader during the Second World War, Jack would fade into obscurity to the extent that most people thought Winston was an only child. Yet, throughout his lifetime, Jack provided a great deal of support particularly of a financial nature to Winston and their mother. Celia's husband John Lee, military historian and co-author of the book has explored the brothers' military careers.
"Winston and Jack - The Churchill Brothers" is due for commercial publication in 2009, and the Lee's literary agent, Mr Andrew Lownie has sold the drama rights to Lion Television.
