Triumph & Tragedy, the sixith and final volume of Churchill's WWII memiors ends on a somber note of regret at not stopping the Russian advance into Western Europe. The memiors remain highly readable and give a complete, if entirely British, account of affairs from the very top. Of course Churchill was correct in his assesment of post-war Soviet intentions, but also less than candid about the debacle of Allied efforts in Italy. I imagine Churchill was difficult to work with but even more difficult to work for. He not only wanted everything to go his way but he wanted to hold all the strings.The memiors are a great achievement and he deserved the Nobel for literature. If you read them, read all six, unabridged volumes that is only just. If an aging Churchill, while still an active party leader, could take the time and effort to write six volumes a reader can surely spare the time to read all six.
