Read full description of the books Milestones to Disasters: The Second World War (Condensed) Series, Book 1:Churchill's six volume history of the Second World War sat on my parents' bookshelves for decades and now sit on mine, unopened. I was therefore grateful to see that BBC Audio has produced Churchill's abridged history (four volumes rather than six) on CD, narrated by an actor with a passable immitation of Churchill's speaking style. Churchill himself said: "History will be kind to me for I intend to write it" and it is with this in mind that you need to approach these books. Nevertheless, it is an excellent introduction to the subject which can be supplemented by visits to the internet to get greater insight by viewing maps of territories and movements of troops mentioned and the various other viewpoints given on the battles, apart from Churchill's. I particularly enjoyed hearing the history of Chamberlin's "peace in our time", Quisling and the Molotov cocktail in this volumne. Churchill's inclusions of details of his own personal life - bricklaying the kitchen in the days leading up to the declaration of war and his recommendations about the benefits of the nap add additional interest and humanity to these pages.
Read information about the authorSir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, FRS, PC (Can) was a British politician who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, and again from 1951 to 1955. A noted statesman, orator and strategist, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army. A prolific author, he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 for his own historical writings, "for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values."
Out of respect for the well known American author, Winston Churchill, Winston S. Churchill offered to use his middle initial in any works that he authored.
