Overview

Winston Churchill was the most eloquent and expressive statesman of his time. It was as an orator that Churchill became most completely alive, and it was through his oratory that his words made their greatest and most enduring impact. While the definitive collection of Churchill's speeches fills 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 covers the whole of Churchill's life, from the very first speech he made 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 his wisdom is called upon again and again. Reading these speeches, from the perspective of a new century, we can once again see Sir Winston Churchill's genius and be moved and inspired by 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.
