Witness to History
Available in Stock
The historian Sir John Wheeler-Bennett (1902-1975) experienced first-hand many of the most pivotal events of the 20th century, and knew many of the political titans of the age. This first biography charts his life and career, recounting how he met Hitler and Hindenburg, and was one of the last people to interview Trotsky. His encounters with Churchill, Attlee and Truman as George VI's official biographer also make this essential reading for anyone interested in political history.
