Overview

From Britain's darkest and finest hour to the great alliance and ultimate victory, the Second World War remains the pivotal event of our century. Churchill was not only its greatest leader, but the free world's most eloquent voice of defiance in the face of Nazi tyranny. His epic account of those times, published in six volumes, won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953.

Now a new generation of readers will have the opportunity to know the heart of that extraordinary work in this reissue of the one-volume abridged Memoirs, first published in 1959. Reduced to a quarter of its original length, but retaining the drama, graphic descriptions, eyewitness details, and magisterial prose of the original volumes, this is not so much a condensation of history as the quintessense of the war as seen by its greatest protagonist.
