Great Battles and Leaders of the Second World War gathers selections from The Second World War, Churchill's epic six-volume history of the pivotal event of the century. This collection of the most notable pages from Churchill's unique narrative offers a new generation of readers his descriptions of the most significant military operations and the greatest protagonists in the war. From the attack on Poland to the dropping of the atomic bomb, Churchill provides behind-the-scenes details of the greatest battles, including the invasion of France, Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, the Caucasus and Stalingrad campaigns, the battles of Midway and Tunis, the landings in Sicily, Salerno, and Normandy, and more. Churchill's eloquent and frank opinions of prime ministers, heads of state, generals, ambassadors, diplomats - Roosevelt, Hitler, Mussolini, Chamberlain, Rommel, Eisenhower, Chiang Kai-shek, Stalin - reveal his exceptional understanding of both friends and foes.
