Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) has been called by historians "the man of the twentieth century." Prime Minister of Great Britain (1940-1945), Churchill won the Nobel prize for literature in 1953.From Library Journal:
Churchill not only ranks in the minds of many as the man of the century: he can lay fair claim to being its finest orator. There are various selections of his speeches, some of which are quite comprehensive (among them a series edited by Randolph S. Churchill, including In the Balance: Speeches 1949-50, 1952; and Stemming the Tide: Speeches 1951 and 1952, LJ 1/15/54), but this may well be the best. Certainly the choices made by Cannadine (history, Columbia) are judicious, but what sets the present work apart is his sparkling introduction. Written with a verve worthy of its subject, it gives a fine picture of Churchill as a speaker. Appropriately, the inspirational wartime messages take pride of place here, but the man's whole career is nicely represented. Essential for both public and academic libraries.
