Churchill lived for most of his life on a financial cliff edge. The popular image may be of champagne and cigars, but behind the scenes, his friends and family came to the rescue several times to prevent his financial problems from engulfing his political career. In No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money (Picador, 2015), author, retired banker, and scholar of history David Lough provides the first full, lifetime narrative of Winston Churchill’s precarious private finances. Using Churchill's own most private records, Lough chronicles the family's habitual shortage of money, Churchill's own extravagance, and his recurring losses from gambling or trading in shares and currencies.

Join NEHGS and NTSF-USA for a special evening with David Lough. Reception and book signing to follow.
