Churchill's History of the English-Speaking Peoplesby Winston S. Churchill, Henry Steele Commager
Churchill's intriguing history unites different countries and cultures through the common bond of the English language. One of the most widely spoken languages in the world, English varies in accent and slang but the people who speak it have all experienced similar conditions, be it expansionism or war. This illustrated work travels from the colonies of Africa to the theatres of Mississippi, detailing the lives of world leaders and analyzing the events that altered not only English-speaking countries but the whole world.

Never have so many owed so much to so few (Churchill and his staff of researchers). The 3 volume set (republished by Barnes and Noble)is outstanding if you can find a set.
