Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Churchill\'s six-volume history of World War II — the definitive work, remarkable both for its sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, universally acknowledged as a magnificent historical reconstruction and an enduring work of literature. From Britian\'s darkest and finest hour to the great alliance and ultimate victory, the Second World War remains the pivotal event in our century. Churchill was not only its greatest leader, but the free world\'s most eloquent voice of defiance in the face of Nazi tyranny. His epic account of those times, published in six volumes, won the Nobel Prize in 1953.'

Synopsis:

The step-by-step decline into war, with Churchill becoming prime minister as "the tocsin was about to sound."
