9780306821974: Churchill: The Power of Words

Winston Churchill knew the power of words. In speeches, books, and 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.

Martin Gilbert, Churchill's official biographer, has chosen passages that express the essence of Churchill's thoughts and describe—in his own inimitable words—the main adventures of his life and the main crises of his career. From first to last, they give insight into his life, how it evolved, and how he made his mark on the British and world stage.

About the Author:

Sir Martin Gilbert is one of Britain's leading historians. He is the author of more than eighty books and an Honorary Fellow of Merton College, Oxford. He lives in London.

Review:

Washington Times, 7/31/12“What makes this particular volume stand out is the expert’s encyclopedic knowledge about the subject—and his keen eye in choosing the most exceptional works of a man who wrote and spoke so many of them. Mr. Gilbert has long been Churchill’s greatest champion, but he wisely takes a secondary role to simply provide brief thoughts on each excerpt’s historical significance. In doing so, Churchill’s astonishing mastery of the English language can thereby do all the talking...a superb volume of Churchill’s writings and speeches.”

Veterans Reporter, 9/1/12“[A] masterful book and a history worth buying and reading and paying attention to.”

Buffalo News, 9/30/12“Churchill’s speeches...sing in a way English language statesmen and politicians have tried unsuccessfully to match ever since. This volume has them all, and in chronological order, often with brief lead-ins to supply context, so it can be read as a history of the British Empire during the first have of the 20th century, or used as an anthology of Churchillian quotations...Kudos to Sir Gilbert for the service he has performed in packing the best of Churchill into one comprehensible volume.”
