Overview

Winston Churchill was the most eloquent and expressive statesman of his time. He used the power of oratory to inspire not just the British nation in its hour of peril but the people of Occupied Europe and the entire Free World. In the words of President John F. Kennedy: "Winston Churchill mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." While the definitive collection of Churchill's speeches fills 8,500 pages in eight volumes, here for the first time, his grandson, Winston S. Churchill, has put together a personal selection of his favorite speeches in a single, indispensable volume. He has chosen from his grandfather's entire output and thoughtfully introduces each selection. The book spans the whole of Churchill's life, from his very first speech to those of his last days. It includes some of Churchill's best-known speeches as well as some that have never before been published in popular form. Today, Sir Winston Churchill is revered as an indomitable figure and a symbol of leadership. His wisdom is called upon again and again, especially in times of crisis. Reading these speeches from the perspective of a new century, we can perceive Winston Churchill's genius and, to this day, feel the emotion and inspiration of his words.

Whats there to say about Churchill and his speeches? What could be better to snuggel up, go through the pages, let your mind wander and almost grasp for Churchill. He was a very strong minded yet so sensitive mentioned subjects many leaders and politicians stay away from and still do. Buy, read and enjoy, definetly something that will surprise you

When I need some historical encouragement and perspective I turn to the powerful speeches of Winston Churchill. I may not be in the middle of World War II but we all have our trials and tribulations and often times the wisdom and perseverance of this great man has been a true light illuminating some of life's darkest challenges. This is an excellent collection for his most ardent admirers and his toughest detractors. We can all learn much from this great leader, one of my heroes.
