NPG x2805; William Maxwell Aitken, 1st Baron Beaverbrook by Howard Coster

The trio of Lord Beaverbrook, Lord Birkenhead, and Brendan Bracken were referred to by Clementine Churchill as “The Terrible B’s,” the friends of her husband whom she firmly disliked and mistrusted. The long and periodically frosty friendship of Winston Churchill and Beaverbrook is profiled in a piece published on the Churchill Project, which is maintained by Hillsdale College. The article was prepared by the author of this blog and is entitled, “Great Contemporaries: Max Aitken, Lord Beaverbrook.” It is available here.
