Read full description of the books:
“We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!”
Who can deny feeling moved by these words—or by any of the hundreds of speeches given by Winston Churchill to rally the British public, spur its government to armament against Hitler, and defend the causes for which he believed? Churchill By Himself is the first collection of quotations from a leader who had as much talent for wit as he had for inspiration and exhortation. Edited by renowned Churchill scholar Richard Langsworth, this volume is the definitive collection of important quotes from one of the 20th century’s most persuasive and brilliant orators.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 “for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.”
Over a 64-year span, Churchill published over 40 books, many multi-volume definitive accounts of historical events to which he was a witness and participant. All are beautifully written and as accessible and relevant today as when first published.
During his fifty-year political career, Churchill served twice as Prime Minister in addition to other prominent positions—including President of the Board of Trade, First Lord of the Admiralty, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Home Secretary. In the 1930s, Churchill was one of the first to recognize the danger of the rising Nazi power in Germany and to campaign for rearmament in Britain. His leadership and inspired broadcasts and speeches during World War II helped strengthen British resistance to Adolf Hitler—and played an important part in the Allies’ eventual triumph.
One of the most inspiring wartime leaders of modern history, Churchill was also an orator, a historian, a journalist, and an artist. All of these aspects of Churchill are fully represented in this collection of his works.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Winston Churchill was more than a wartime leader and statesman. He was also an artist, a patriot, a philosopher, and a humorist. Our collection of Churchill’s more personal works gives the reader a fascinating insight into the great man’s character through his less formal writings.
Far from the lofty speeches that define his voice to most people, these works paint a picture of Churchill that is not only driven by a deep love for his country, but that is also surprisingly witty and self-deprecating. Ideal for Churchill fans and anyone interested in Britain’s political history, this collection provides an intimate picture of an important wartime leader—rare in both its detail and its vividness of personality.
