‘The Churchill Papers collection is an Aladdin’s cave of historical riches, which it has been my privilege to explore. I strongly endorse this project, which will enable everyone to have access to Winston S. Churchill’s writings and correspondence. It is a project that will bring the history of the first sixty years of the twentieth century, and the remarkable story of Britain’s greatest Prime Minister, into the classroom and the home.’

The late Sir Martin Gilbert, former Special Advisor to the Churchill Archive and Churchill Biographer

‘The Churchill archive will make students much more likely to use primary sources, and will give them a wider range of documents to draw on. In addition, I am more likely now to shape components of my course around the documents if I know they are available to students in such a convenient form.’

Christopher M. Bell, Associate Professor, Dalhousie University, Canada

'There is a wealth of material within the Churchill Archive. The richness and variety of documents form an invaluable resource, helping me to get students to engage critically and creatively with the period. I wholly recommend it.'

Richard Toye, Professor of Modern History, University of Exeter, UK

'There are few figures more important to the history of the twentieth century than Winston Churchill. Making his archives accessible to scholars and students of history the world over is a crowning achievement, which will provide new generations with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of not only Churchill, but also the tumultuous times in which he lived.'

David B. Woolner, Senior Fellow and Hyde Park Resident Historian, Roosevelt Institute, USA
