Description - The Second World War 1, by Winston S. Churchill

Winston Churchill's six-volume history of the cataclysm that swept the world remains the definitive history of the Second World War. Lucid, dramatic, remarkable both for its breadth and sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it is universally acknowledged as a magnificent reconstruction and is an enduring, compelling work that led to his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Gathering Storm vividly describes the steps that led to War, a period that ended with Churchill as Prime Minister - the aftermath of the First World War, the rise of Adolf Hitler, British attempts at appeasement and the eventual outbreak of conflict on a global scale for the second time in thirty years.

Author Biography - Winston S. Churchill

Date- 2003-06-23 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. Winston Churchill (1874-1965) was prime minister of Great Britain from 1940 to 1945 and from 1951 to 1955.
