Description

The second volume of Winston Churchill's six-volume definitive historical and autobiographical account of World War II, Their Finest Hour picks up where The Gathering Storm left off--with the fall of France to Hitler's forces and Britain's stand as the lone defender against the Nazi war machine.

Britain was virtually alone in its definitive stand against Hitler for eight months. Through internal memoranda, personal correspondence, and other contemporary documents, Churchill reveals hidden aspects of the war--such as how much Britain really knew about Germany's plans for invasion and Hitler's attack on Russia; secret negotiations with Spain, the conflicts within the French resistance movement; and an intelligence leak that led to failure in West Africa. As both a witness and a shaper of history during this volatile time, readers can ask for no better guide than Winston Churchill.

    It is difficult for anyone who loves history and freedom to read more than few pages of Churchill without either pausing to smile at his droll wit and sharp insight or tear up at his eloquence in victory and defeat. These WWII volumes are wonderful. If you can find the full, unabridged volumes of his "History of The English Speaking Peoples" grab them as well. Along with "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" by Gibbon, this is what Americans should read to understand the cultural forces that shaped the concepts of liberty and natural rights that are the basis of our republic. Anyway, great book.
