Abstract:

This first volume of collected essays and journalism from the Nobel Prize-winning prime minister includes some of his most important WWII speeches. Legendary politician and military strategist Winston S. Churchill was a master not only of the battlefield, but of the page and the podium. Over the course of forty books and countless speeches, broadcasts, news items and more, he addressed a country at war and at peace, thrilling with victory but uneasy with its shifting role in global politics. In 1953, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for "his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values." During his lifetime, he enthralled readers and brought crowds roaring to their feet; in the years since his death, his skilled writing has inspired generations of eager history buffs. Churchill was at his best when rallying Britons to the twin causes of war and justice, delivering inspiration and hope during the hard years of bombings, violence, sacrifice, and terror. This compilation, composed of speeches made in the early years of the war, contains some of his best. Profound words from famous speeches in this collection include: "This was their finest hour;" "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed, by so many, to so few;" and "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat." Many decades after the end of the war, Churchill's words still have the power to stir the blood-and inspire the heart. A must-read for all WWII history fans.
