"I am perhaps the only man who has passed through the twosupreme cataclysms of recorded history in high executive office... I was in thissecond struggle with Germany for more than five years the head of His Majesty'sGovernment. I write therefore from a different standpoint and with moreauthority than was possible in my earlier books. I do not describe it as ahistory, for that belongs to another generation. But I claim with confidencethat it is a contribution to history which will be of service to the future." Sir Winston Churchill From the origins of the conflict, the rise of Hitler and thefutile attempts at appeasement, through the darkest days of Britain's lonestand against the Axis powers, the great alliances with the USA and SovietRussia and the triumphs of D Day and the eventual liberation of Europe to theterrible birth of the Cold War under the shadow of nuclear weaponry, this isWinston Churchill's landmark history of World War II. At once a personalaccount and a majesterial history, TheSecond World War remains Churchill's literary masterpiece.

The first volume of Winston Churchill's six-volume memoirs as a statesman and leader during World War II, The Gathering Storm begins with his thoughts on World War I--and how its ending laid the foundations for the next global conflict. As a military and political leader during both wars, Churchill was well placed to give readers a behind-the-scenes tour of history as it was being created, by a man who had a definitive part in shaping it. The volume continues with contemporary letters and memoranda from the British government documenting the country's terrifying descent into war. As Prime Minister during World War II, Churchill possessed a unique understanding of these documents' connection to historical events--and guides the reader through them with vivid narrative skill.

The fifth in Winston Churchill's six-volume account of World War II picks up at the dawn of a more optimistic time for the Allied forces. After considerable struggle, the balance has finally shifted toward the Allies--and in Closing the Ring, Winston Churchill documents the drive toward victory. With the visionary perspective of one who has both documented and shaped history, Churchill tells us of the destruction of the once-formidable armies of the Third Reich, the bombings of Berlin, and the panic that descended among Hitler's inner circle. Churchill's writing is masterful and highly readable--providing a compelling narrative account of the Allies' end game. But victory was bittersweet for Churchill, who saw the greatness of the British Empire fading even as the war was won. This definitive work provides an intimate look at both this volatile period in history and in Churchill himself--both as a wartime leader and as an individual.

In the final volume of the six-volume series The Second World War, the tide of war has turned in the Allies' favor--and Japan's surrender is imminent. Even so, the Allies find themselves powerless to halt the advance of Russia and lay the groundwork for lasting peace--and Churchill himself is seeing his time of leadership come to a close. In this book, Churchill provides us a glimpse not only of his own political diminishment at the end of the war, but of his predictions on the state of relations between Russia and the West--later fulfilled by the advent of the Cold War. Churchill's definitive history of World War II is extraordinary--both for the breadth and depth of its historical scope and the personal perspective of its writer, a man who not only lived in these times, but shaped them.

In this third volume of a six-volume series, Winston Churchill draws upon thousands of personal memoranda, war correspondence, and internal government memos to describe the full entry of the US into World War II--adding considerable strength to British military operations and morale. While America had contributed to the British war effort before, primarily through the "Lend-Lease" program providing material support to Britain and later to Russia, it was Churchill who finally persuaded an isolationist US Congress to fully join the cause. This account not only documents historical events with thrilling immediacy--it also gives intimate insight into Churchill's state of mind as a military leader. With the US on Britain's side, Churchill's certainty of success stayed with him throughout the war--and made him the indomitable leader history remembers.

The second volume of Winston Churchill's six-volume definitive historical and autobiographical account of World War II, Their Finest Hour picks up where The Gathering Storm left off--with the fall of France to Hitler's forces and Britain's stand as the lone defender against the Nazi war machine. Britain was virtually alone in its definitive stand against Hitler for eight months. Through internal memoranda, personal correspondence, and other contemporary documents, Churchill reveals hidden aspects of the war--such as how much Britain really knew about Germany's plans for invasion and Hitler's attack on Russia; secret negotiations with Spain, the conflicts within the French resistance movement; and an intelligence leak that led to failure in West Africa. As both a witness and a shaper of history during this volatile time, readers can ask for no better guide than Winston Churchill.

At the onset of the fourth volume of Churchill's masterful eyewitness history of World War II, prospects are bleak for the Allies. The Japanese have captured Singapore and Burma in a series of bold offensives; meanwhile, aggressive U-boat attacks in the Atlantic were preventing American, British, and Dutch shipping vessels from supplying the war effort. Rommel was turning the tide toward Axis forces in North Africa. Meanwhile, Hitler was pushing inexorably toward Stalingrad. Churchill faced challenges in the field--and considerable criticism at home. The Hinge of Fate details his success in regaining the upper hand in military endeavors--while bolstering the mood of a pessimistic British public. In addition to broad and deep insight into historical events, this volume documents Churchill's personal relationships with other wartime leaders, including FDR and Stalin, in fascinating detail.
