Description

At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills. We encounter the London of the theatre and the cinema, peopled by such figures as John Gielgud, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh and Douglas Fairbanks Jr, as well as a seemingly endless grand parties at which Chips might well rub shoulders with Cecil Beaton, the Mountbattens, or any number of dethroned European monarchs.

This third and final volume of the unexpurgated diaries of Sir Henry ‘Chips’ Channon begins as the Second World War is turning in the Allies’ favour. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. It ends with Chips descending into poor health but still able to turn a pointed phrase about the political.An utterly addictive glimpse of London high society and politics in the 40s and 50s, superlatively edited by Simon Heffer. He married into the Guinness family, and became a Conservative MP for Southend from 1935 until his death.

Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. Henry ‘chips’ Channon: The Diaries 1943-57 (vol 3) by Chips Channon and Simon Heffer (ed) | 9781529151725. Throughout these final fourteen years Chips assiduously describes events in and around Westminster, gossiping about individual MPs' ambitions and indiscretions, but also rising powerfully to the occasion to capture the mood of the House on VE Day or the ceremony of George VI's funeral.
