Trial e-Resource - The Churchill Archive

"The Churchill Papers collection is an Aladdin’s Cave of historical riches"
           Sir Martin Gilbert, Churchill Biographer and Special Advisor to the Churchill Archive

The Churchill Archive database is now available to us, as an extended free trial until 4 May 2013.

The archive is an invaluable digital library of modern international history containing 800,000 pages of original documents, produced between 1874 and 1965.

These documents range from Winston Churchill’s private correspondence to his official exchanges with kings, presidents, politicians, and military leaders, and include his speeches, telegrams, manuscripts, government transcripts and other key historical documents, all available online for the first time.

As well as being an invaluable source of primary source material dealing with both World Wars, the Cold War and Depression eras, and 20th Century international relations, the Churchill Archive also offers interactive user tools and valuable secondary materials, for teaching and research.

These resources include e-books and print material, further reading lists and student exercises, plus editorially-selected links to other resources, video and audio content, and biographical and bibliographic databases.

"This is more than a fantastic collection of primary source material; it is a unique online resource offering new insight into a fascinating period of our past”
