This review is from: Dinner with Churchill: Policy-Making at the Dinner Table: The Prime Minister's Tabletop Diplomacy (Hardcover)
What a wonderful theme for a book on Churchill. The Premier was well known for his dinner tete a tete, and all the main meetings are here: Newfoundland, Moscow, Yalta etc. As well as describing Churchill's table talk, it also gives us a good account of the dinner guests themselves; Stalin, Roosevelt, Eden. The book is light enough to describe the dishes devoured and the champagne that was drunk, while being engaging enough to highlight why these meetings were so important, and why Churchill was always keen to impress wih his banquets.
