The events leading up to the start of World War Two,
By A Customer
This review is from: Gathering Storm (Second World War, Vol 1) (Paperback)
History is written by the victors but Churchill does appear to report a chronology of events as they unfolded, based on the information and circumstances as they were at the time. He offers the invaluable insight of a politician, at first excluded from events and then at their center. A sense of the isolation and desperate nature of the British resistance is given and their determination to prevail against ever increasing odds. No history of World War 2 is complete without the story of the island nation who fought on alone for more than two years and no one was in a better position to report that story than Winston S. Churchill. Compelling reading which will leave you searching book stores for the other volumes in the series.
