Book Description

Winston Churchill’s reputation still looms large in the canon of twentieth-century history—as a war leader, orator, and pillar of strength for Britain in the years of struggle against Hitler. Churchill’s inspiring wartime speeches gave the British hope and comfort during years of bombings, violence, sacrifice, and terror.

This compilation, composed of speeches made from 1938 to the end of 1940, contains some of his best. Highlights include “This was Their Finest Hour;” “Never in the Field of Human Conflict Was So Much Owed, By So Many, to So Few;” and “I Have Nothing to Offer but Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat.” Even many decades after the end of the war, Churchill’s words still have the power to stir the blood—and inspire the heart.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 “for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.”
Over a 64-year span, Churchill published over 40 books, many multi-volume definitive accounts of historical events to which he was a witness and participant. All are beautifully written and as accessible and relevant today as when first published.
During his fifty-year political career, Churchill served twice as Prime Minister in addition to other prominent positions—including President of the Board of Trade, First Lord of the Admiralty, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Home Secretary. In the 1930s, Churchill was one of the first to recognize the danger of the rising Nazi power in Germany and to campaign for rearmament in Britain. His leadership and inspired broadcasts and speeches during World War II helped strengthen British resistance to Adolf Hitler—and played an important part in the Allies’ eventual triumph.
One of the most inspiring wartime leaders of modern history, Churchill was also an orator, a historian, a journalist, and an artist. All of these aspects of Churchill are fully represented in this collection of his works.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Even decades later, long after the bloody conflict of World War II has been consigned to history, Sir Winston Churchill’s words to a country at war still have the power to thrill. Arguably the greatest orator of the last hundred years, Churchill was at his best when leading Britain in times of war—sometimes exhorting, sometimes pleading, sometimes energizing, and always inspiring.

Rosetta Books offers a complete set of volumes of the wartime speeches for which Churchill was best known, presented in the original formats in which he authorized them for publication. Churchill’s oratory was cited by the Nobel Foundation in granting him the Nobel Prize for Literature. Ranging from the beginning of England’s brave stand against Hitler to the surrender of Japan and its aftermath, they bring a long and turbulent period in world history to vibrant life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Printing errors - binding/edition faulty 3 Jan. 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
From what I read of the book, this volume of some of Churchill's speeches is quite brilliant. However, the problem is with the printing and binding of this book.

Before I returned this book as faulty to Amazon, I compiled the following errors:

Page 15 and 18 are on the same leaf (where are 16 and 17?), pages 21 and 22 are missing, pages 23 and 26 are on the same leaf (where are 24 and 25?).

I went no further than page 26. Unfortunately, Amazon have been unable to check any subsequent stock - I would recommend you buy a secondhand 'original' (produced 1941-1945) as it would appear to not suffer from these particular problems.
