Felix Klos (1992) is an American / Dutch historian, political scientist and author.


Klos was educated at the University of Oxford, Lincoln college[1] and Middlebury College Vt.[2] His academic work has focused on European integration. During his studies he served as a Legislative Intern in the United States Senate and an International Office Intern for the progressive Dutch Liberal Democratic Party D66.


Klos is the author of Churchill on Europe: The Untold Story of Churchill's European Project (London, IB Tauris, June 2016)[3] and Winston Churchill - Father of Europe (Amsterdam, 2016, Hollands Diep).[4] The Guardian described the book as "scintillating” and observed that it “shows very persuasively how Churchill supported a postwar union of European states and wanted Britain to play a leading part in it.".[5][6] In addition to the books Klos published a number of newspaper and magazine articles regarding Churchill's European legacy in the perspective of the UK EU referendum in June 2016.[7][8][9][10][11]
