Happy Warrior : Life Story Of Sir Winston Churchill

Clifford Makins
Frank Bellamy
Each issue of the Eagle was chocablock with adventures and exciting new pastimes for boys - from Dan Dare to Extra Special Agent Harris Tweed. In the 1950s, the comic embarked on an ambitious series chronicling the life of some of Britain’s most famous men - Nelson, Baden Powell, Alfred the Great, Montgomery and Churchill, to name a few. Here we have the complete set of Eagle comic strips which tell the story of Winston Churchill’s life — his birth at Blenheim, his education at Harrow and Oxford, his time in the army as well as his appointment to government and eventually to his stint as War Leader.
 
This volume also includes an extended essay by Richard M. Langworth, a pre-eminent Churchill historian. The original comic strip format, is lifted directly out of the famous Eagle comics from the 1950s ‘Heroes’ series. Written by Clifford Makins, with artwork and a cover by the great Frank Bellamy.
