It contains not merely tributes by his friends and colleagues throughout the world, but a number of personal comments and recollections by men and women who knew him intimately. Among contributors are leading soldiers and administrators who served under Sir Winston when he was Prime Minister during the last war, allies from abroad, like General Eisenhower, fellow members of parliament, and those who helped him in his writing of history and his painting of pictures.
