3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 7, 2009
Format: Hardcover
"His Finest Hours" brings together a fine collection of Winston Churchill's famous war speeches, about 36 in all, including "Their Finest Hour", "Blood, toil, tears, and sweat", "Fight them on the beaches", "Never in the field of human conflict", and many more.

Author Graham Stewart provides practical insight by introducing each speech with a note on it's background and the important events of the period. The speeches are further enhanced by the inclusion of wartime photographs in black and white. There is also an index of notable lines and a regular index at the end of the book.

Churchill's wartime speeches are not only significant because of their historical content, but also because it showcases the inspiring and unwavering qualities of one of the greatest statesmen in history, in the process demonstrating his remarkable grasp of the English language. A stirring collection that will appeal to those who love history and admirers of Churchill.

This excellent book draws its content from the 6 book series on the era of World War II: The Gathering Storm, Their Finest Hour, The Grand Alliance, The Hinge of Fate, Closing the Ring, and Triumph and Tragedy. In His Finest Hour you will find truly the best of the best speeches made by the Prime Minister of Great Britain.

I love history. I love great men. This book is one of the best WWII snapshots because it allows Churchill's own words to explain the events and put them in context. Fantastic reading!
