Never Give in! Vol 1 A&M [CD-Audio/MP3 Edition]
Winston Churchill's Greatest Speeches by Winston Churchill
Book DescriptionWinston Churchill steered Britain through its darkest hours during World War Two. He was one of the twentieth century's greatest orators, and the speeches that he painstakingly composed, rehearsed and delivered inspired courage in an entire nation. Churchill's output was prolific - his complete speeches alone contain over 5 million words. On this special recording, the best and most important of those have been brought together in this historic volume. Using digitally remastered archive recordings, they include: 'Blood, toil, tears and sweat' / 'The Few' / 'This was their finest hour' / 'We can take it!' / 'An Iron Curtain has descended' / 'Never give in!' / 'A total and unmitigated defeat'/ 'Give us the tools'. Winston Churchill oversaw some of the most important events the world has ever seen and was the most eloquent and expressive statesman of his age. These speeches help reveal the man behind the defiant orator and demonstrate why, in a national poll, Sir Winston Churchill was voted 'Greatest Briton of All Time'. ' The most persuasive and patriotic exhortations to arms since the Agincourt address from Henry V.' - Guardian. 2 CDs. 2 hrs 30 mins.

Author Biography - Winston Churchill
Winston Churchill (1874-1965) was educated at Harrow and Sandhurst, and after several years in the army, became a newspaper correspondent and then an MP. After Chamberlain's defeat in May 1940, Churchill formed a coalition government and as Prime Minister led Britain through the Second World War. Defeated in the July 1945 election, he became Leader of the Opposition, and then became Prime Minister once more in 1951. In his last years he was often described as 'the greatest living Englishman'. He was knighted in 1953, and won the Nobel Prize for Literature the same year. His grandson, Winston S. Churchill (born 1940), has also been a writer, journalist and politician.
