Overview

Winston Churchill looms large in the history of our century as the chief architect of the Allied effort in Europe during the Second World War.  Here, in his own unmistakable voice and those of stage luminaries Sir Laurence Olivier  and Sir John Gielgud, are the great statesman's most famous speeches and some key excerpts from his memoirs.

Along with the words of Churchill are original, representative speeches from many of the other important players in the tumult of events that was World War II - including: Truman, FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt, Patton, Eisenhower, and Chamberlain.

From Churchill's boyhood to his warning on Poland in 1937, from Chamberlain's resignation in 1940 to Roosevelt's declaration of war in 1941, from the victory at El Alamein in 1942 to Eisenhower's D-day speech of June 6th, 1944, and finally Kennedy's proclamation of Churchill as an honorary citizen of the United States in 1963, the listener is brought back to a time in history that changed the world forever.

This unique audio captures the writings and oratorical skills for which Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1953.
