The definitive, Nobel Prize–winning history of World War II, universally acknowledged as a magnificent historical reconstruction and an enduring work of literature


From Britain''s darkest and finest hour to the great alliance and ultimate victory, the Second World War remains the most pivotal event of the twentieth century. Winston Churchill was not only the war''s greatest leader, he was the free world''s singularly eloquent voice of defiance in the face of Nazi tyranny, and it''s that voice that animates this six-volume history. Remarkable both for its sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it begins withThe Gathering Storm; moves on toTheir Finest Hour, TheGrand Alliance,The Hinge of Fate, andClosing the Ring; and concludes withTriumph and Tragedy.

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."
