About the Book:  

"If Hitler invaded Hell, I would at least make a favourable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons." 
Of Labour Party leader Clement Attlee - whom Churchill had once described as 'a sheep in sheep's clothing': 'He is a modest man with much to be modest about.' 
Proposing a toast to the Soviet leader at the Yalta conference in 1945: 'To Premier Stalin, whose foreign policy manifests a desire for peace. 'Then, in a whispered aside out of the interpreter's hearing: 'A piece of Poland, a piece of Czechoslovakia, a piece of Romania...' 
On being urged by a British diplomat to flatter the Free French leader General de Gaulle (whom he described as looking 'like a female llama who has just been surprised in her bath'): I'll kiss him on both cheeks - or if you prefer, on all four.' 
To a well-endowed American woman who wished him to know that she had got up at dawn and driven a hundred miles to attend the unveiling of his bust in Richmond, Virginia: 'Madam, I want you to know that I would happily reciprocate the honour.'
