After the tragic consequences of his involvement in the catastrophic Dardanelles Campaign of World War I, Churchill’s political career seemed over. He was widely regarded as little more than a bombastic and unpredictable buccaneer until, that is, 1921, when an unexpected inheritance heralded a series of events that laid the foundations for his future success.
This evening, renowned Churchill scholar David Stafford discusses the events – personal and public – of 1921, offering a portrait of Churchill at a key turning point in his life.
