Overview

Churchill: The Power of Words by Winston Churchill, Michael Jayston

Winston Churchill knew the power of words. In public speeches and published books, in newspaper and magazine articles, he expressed his feelings and laid out his vision for the future. His wartime writings and speeches have fascinated generation after generation with their powerful narrative style and thoughtful reflection.

This audiobook contains one hundred extracts from his books, articles, and speeches. They range from his memories of his schooldays to his contributions to the debates on social policy and on war, his contributions in both world wars to the events and discourse, and his efforts after 1945 to see the world a better place.

Martin Gilbert, Churchill's official biographer, has chosen passages that express to him the essence of Churchill's thoughts, and which describe—in his own inimitable words—the main adventures of his life and the main crises of his career with Gilbert’s own introduction and interlinking text. They give, from first to last, an insight into his life and thought, how it evolved, and how he made his mark on the British and world stage.

My dad was in the Navy during WWII, and I often buy books for him about the war. He has often said, Churchill is fascinating, you should learn more. I took him up on it, and Dad (as usual) is quite right. This book is arranged by his age in life. What a writer Churchill was. I am only at the tip of this great book. He was a powerhouse ahead of his time. I can't recommend this enough. Excellent book.

Martin Gilbert ( Sir Winston Churchill's official biographer), has brought together his most powerful and important speeches and the genesis that caused them. A worthwhile book that shows Churchill's amazing cognizance of the times of which he lived and what he did to confront both good and evil! He truly was The Man of the 20th Century
