World War




Amazon.com 'After the end of the World War of 1914 there was a deep conviction and almost

universal hope that peace would reign in the world. This heart's desire of all the peoples could

easily have been gained by steadfastness in righteous convictions, and by reasonable common

sense and prudence.' But we all know that's not what happened. As Britain's prime minister for

most of the Second World War, Winston Churchill--whose career had to that point already

encompassed the roles of military historian and civil servant with a proficiency in both that few

others could claim--had a unique perspective on the conflict, and as soon as he left office in 1945,

he began to set that perspective down on paper. To measure the importance of The Second World

War, it is worth remembering that there are no parallel accounts from either of the other Allied

leaders, Roosevelt and Stalin. We have in this multivolume work an account that contains both

comprehensive sweep and intimate detail. Almost anybody who compiles a list of such works

ranks it highly among the nonfiction books of the 20th century. In the opening volume, The

Gathering Storm, Churchill tracks the erosion of the shaky peace brokered at the end of the First

World War, followed by the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis and their gradual spread

from beyond Germany's borders to most of the European continent. Churchill foresaw the coming

crisis and made his opinion known quite clearly throughout the latter '30s, and this book concludes

on a vindicating note, with his appointment in May 1940 as prime minister, after which he recalls

that 'I felt as if I were walking with destiny, and that all my past life had been but a preparation for

this hour and for this trial.' Their Finest Hour concerns itself with 1940. France falls, and England is

left to face the German menace alone. Soon London is under siege from the air--and Churchill has

a few stories of his own experiences during the Blitz to share--but they persevere to the end of

what Churchill calls 'the most splendid, as it was the most deadly, year in our long English and

British history.' They press on in The Grand Alliance, liberating Ethiopia from the Italians and

lending support to Greece. Then, when Hitler reneges on his non-aggression pact with the Soviet

Union (the very signing of which had proved Stalin and his commissars 'the most completely

outwitted bunglers of the Second World War'), the Allied team begins to coalesce. The bombing of

Pearl Harbor by the Japanese makes the participation of the United States in the war official, and

this is of 'the greatest joy' to Churchill: 'How long the war would last or in what fashion it would end

no man could tell, nor did I at that moment care. Once again in our long island history we should

emerge, however mauled or mutilated, safe and victorious.' But as the fourth volume, The Hinge of

Fate, reveals, success would not happen overnight. The Japanese military still held strong

positions in t
