The Second World War by Winston Churchill,
This review is from: The Second World War (Paperback)
This is every bit an edge of your seat read, if it were fiction it would be up there with Lord of Rings, in both detail and length!!!
This book guides you through the political and military history from the end of the First World War, which shaped the world of sanctions, trade and political will, right through to the after affects in the 1950’s.
It shows where political judgement at one moment affected the future time and time again. This is interwoven with a detailed examination of the military facts, some tragic, some heroic that are the consequence of them.
The style of Churchill is one of detail and plot, which makes for an easy read, allowing a solid grasp of the plot, as well as an understanding of views of all the main players, through his eyes.
A fantastic read and thoroughly recommended, simply a terrible shame that it is all fact and not fiction!

"You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism, but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless of whether it is in the hands of Hitler of a Jesuit priest." - Winston Churchill (1940) source - Churchill in War and Peace, Emrys Hughes, 1950 (British edition), p. 145.
"In less than ten years Germany became easily the most powerful state in Europe. It worked so magically and magnificently that it sounded the death knell of the entire (Zionist) Jewish money system. World Jewry knew that they had to destroy Hitler's system, by whatever means might prove necessary, or their own [system of usury] would necessarily die. And if it died, with it must die their dream and their hope of making themselves masters of the world. The primary issue over which World War II was fought was to determine which money system was to survive. At bottom it was not a war between Germany and the so-called allies. Primarily it was war to the death between Germany and the International Money Power." --William Gayley Simpson, 'Which Way Western Man' (p.642)
