Summary
"Winston Spencer Churchill (1874-1965), one of the most famous political figures of the twentieth century, was the son of an American mother and a British father. He served as a British army officer and a war correspondent before becoming a member of Parliament, and was the only major statesman to hold high office in both World Wars. Forming a coalition government in 1940, he led Britain through the Second World War, and was again Prime Minister from 1951-1955. Churchill was a prolific writer, a prodigious correspondent and commentator, a noted orator, and a distinguished historian and biographer. His works include My Early Life, Marlborough, The World Crisis, The Second World War, and A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. His speeches have been collected into a number of volumes, including most recently by his grandson Winston S. Churchill as Never Give In! Sir Winston was both knighted and awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953." "Churchill's career was one rich in rhetoric and literature. A powerful, persuasive speaker, philosopher, and notorious wit, he has become one of the twentieth century's most oft-quoted leaders. Now for the first time, Churchill enthusiasts can enjoy an authoritative, attributed, annotated, and cross-referenced collection of Churchill sayings, edited by longtime Churchill scholar Richard M. Langworth. The most comprehensive volume of its kind, Churchill By Himself presents the full range of Churchill commentary and thought, from his best-known speeches to his droll ripostes, with appendices on false attributions and the evolution of the phrase "blood, toil, tears, and sweat.""--Jacket
