Description

This second-to-last volume of Winston Churchill’s wartime speeches, broadcasts, public messages, and other communications take readers through the last significant events of the war leading up to Allied victory.

From D-Day and the invasion of France to war on the Eastern Front, the fate of Poland and the Allied defense against the Nazis’ V2 rockets, this collection displays Churchill’s oratory skills in their full power. At once lofty, severe, lyrical, and folksy, he is capable of inspiring, amusing, and exhorting his public through brilliant oratory, fiery passion, scathing wit, and clear resolve.

These speeches are fascinating reading even today—both for their historical significance and for the masterful and vastly entertaining writing.
