Do you think you know Winston Churchill? Do you have your favorite Churchill quote ready to whip out at any given moment? Do you think you’re a glow-worm?
In association with the Imperial War Museums, author Kieran Whitworth challenges what you think you know about the famed wartime PM in his latest, The Churchill Quiz Book.
Covering “all aspects of Churchill’s heroic, controversial life, from beginning to end,” Whitworth “mixes multiple-choice questions, anagrams, and truth or fiction sections,” and “proves there is much more to learn about the great British statesman, and will baffle and intrigue even the most enthusiastic fans,” according to the press release.
The book is an ideal first date icebreaker if you ask this author.
So, to all the Churchillian fans out there, good luck and Godspeed.
