Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

The much-anticipated third volume of Churchill's fascinating papers.

Synopsis:

"A major addition to the Churchill literature."'"Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

In the first eight months of his prime ministership, Winston Churchill surmounted more crises than many leaders face in an entire career: a fast-disintegrating ground war in Europe as the German blitzkrieg overran Holland, Belgium, and France, and drove the British army to retreat and evacuate at Dunkirk; the consolidation of the German occupation of Norway and Denmark; an ongoing state of emergency at home as Britain struggled to modernize its army, navy, and air forces at breakneck speed; and the pivotal weeks of the Battle of Britain, the "finest hour" when Britain stood fast against the unremitting onslaught of the German Luftwaffe.

Synopsis:

This extraordinary book brings these months before us in the diaries, memoranda, letters, telegrams, cabinet minutes, and speeches of Churchill and his closest colleagues. It puts us at Churchill's side in some of the most tumultuous events of world history and offers an unparalleled view of his leadership qualities and his flaws, as he organizes the war effort, bolsters morale, bullies those who stand in his way, schemes to outstrategize his own generals, and works tirelessly to involve the United States in the fight against Fascism. This is truly history as it was lived, in the war whose outcome formed the modern world.
