Book Description

31 Dec 2001 Churchill War Papers (Book 3)
The year 1941 "opens in storm," Winston Churchill wrote to President Roosevelt on New Year's Day. This critical year of World War II is brought before us here in the letters, telegrams, diaries, memoranda, Cabinet minutes, and speeches of Churchill and his closest colleagues. Of particular interest to American readers will be Churchill's many messages to Roosevelt that year as the United States inches closer to an alliance with Britain, culminating in the Atlantic Charter in August and the American entry into the war four months later. The War Papers put us at Churchill's side during some of the most tumultuous events in world history and offer an unparalleled view of his leadership qualities, his character, and his achievements. This is truly history as it was lived, in the war whose outcome formed the modern world.

First Sentence
At this moment when the New Year opens in storm, I feel it my duty on behalf of the British Government, and indeed of the whole British Empire, to tell you, Mr President, how lively is our sense of gratitude and admiration for the memorable declaration which you made to the American people and to the lovers of freedom in all the Continents on Sunday last. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably good! 4 Mar 2011
By Ron Gornischeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I own all three books,up to and including 1941.I can't say enough about this series.I have written to Sir Martin,and he needs another nine months to a year to publish the next volume (1942).So look towards the end of this year (2011) for it.For those who want an "insiders" view of the British struggles with Nazi Germany AND Japan,you must invest in this very important series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Churchill writes his way through history 31 Jan 2007
By imu ilu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are a Churchill fan, you should get at least one volume of his "war papers" that Martin Gilbert has compiled. That way you can see the sheer volume of output that he generated, plus the sheer magnificence of the things Churchill grasped in his role, and that he communicated to those that he told to do something, those that he asked for help, those that he shared his empathy with, and, may I add, those of us many years later that get a better understanding of his role and his valor through reading his actual words written on a daily basis during the struggle of the war. I've seen where Churchill was born, and where his remains now are buried, but Churchill's words are still alive and available, through these books that Gilbert has been so useful in issuing. A note of caution--they are sometimes tedious reading, since there's over 1700 pages for 1941 alone (can you write almost 5 pages a day as Churchill did back then, for a whole year, way before there was a computer to instantly accept your keystrokes as you type?) An astounding range of material and an astounding range of human communication.
