Book Description

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874-1965) was a British statesman, soldier, and writer. A graduate of Sandhurst, he fought in India, the Sudan, and South Africa. In 1900 he was elected to Parliament. Churchill was the first lord of the admiralty (1911-1915) in World War I until disgraced by the failure of the Dardanelles campaign, which he had advocated. He afterwards served in numerous cabinet positions in the Liberal government of Lloyd George. A Conservative after 1924, he was Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1924 to 1929; his revaluation of the pound was a component leading to the general strike of 1926. Not in office from 1929 to 1939, Churchill broadcast ignored warnings of the danger of Nazi Germany. In 1940, seven months after the outbreak of World War II, he succeeded Neville Chamberlain as prime minister. His rousing oratory, his vigor, and his refusal to make peace with Hitler were critical to sustaining British resistance from 1940 to 1942. Before the United States entrance’ into the war, he met President Franklin D. Roosevelt at sea for crucial talks. He twice addressed the American Congress, twice went to Moscow, and attended a series of international conferences, including the Yalta Conference. Following the postwar Labour victory in 1945, he became leader of the opposition. In 1951 he was once more elected prime minister; he was knighted in 1953 and retired in 1955. Winston Churchill was the author of many histories, biographies, and memoirs, and in 1953 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature.

If, in my opinion, you need a reference book of Churchill's remarkable speeches and quotations this is a very useful book.

2.0 out of 5 stars The man was brilliant, this book is not 11 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I struggled through the first part of this book and then gave up. Something I do not ordinarily do. Yes there are some excellent quotes from a man who has to be the most eminent politician of the 20th century and undoubtably a most gifted author and speaker. However, stringing the quotes together, out of historical or other context, makes no sense and is boring.

On the basis that an infinite nuber of monkeys typing for long enough will eventually produce the works of Shakespere, it seems to me that Mr Dell has just produced a work of no value simply by typing. "A vocabulary of truth and simplicity will be of service throughout your life." I have no reason to doubt that this may have been spoken or written by Sir Winston Churchill, almost all of who's books I have read, but out of context it is just rubbish. Avoid!
