Books about Brits

Today’s #FridayReads feature famous figures from British history:

NO MORE CHAMPAGNE: Churchill and His Money by David Lough
Meticulously researched by a senior private banker turned historian, NO MORE CHAMPAGNE reveals for the first time the full extent of the iconic British war leader’s private struggle to maintain a way of life instilled by his upbringing and expected of his public position. “Debut author Lough, an investment advisor, succeeds in making this unique chronicle of Winston Churchill’s money problems fascinating, even for those with limited interest in financial matters.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

A ROYAL EXPERIMENT: Love and Duty, Madness and Betrayal—the Private Lives of King George III and Queen Charlotte by Janice Hadlow
Now in trade paperback with a gorgeous new cover! Longtime BBC staffer Hadlow debuts with “…a particularly incisive—and, it should be stressed, completely accessible—understanding of America’s last king.” — Booklist, starred review
