Second World War 6: Triumph and Tragedy
|Series:||Second World War Ser.|
In the final volume of the six-volume series The Second World War, the tide of war has turned in the Allies' favor--and Japan's surrender is imminent. Even so, the Allies find themselves powerless to halt the advance of Russia and lay the groundwork for lasting peace--and Churchill himself is seeing his time of leadership come to a close.
In this book, Churchill provides us a glimpse not only of his own political diminishment at the end of the war, but of his predictions on the state of relations between Russia and the West--later fulfilled by the advent of the Cold War.
Churchill's definitive history of World War II is extraordinary--both for the breadth and depth of its historical scope and the personal perspective of its writer, a man who not only lived in these times, but shaped them.
Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) was prime minister of Great Britain from 1940 to 1945 and from 1951 to 1955. A prolific writer, whose works include The Second World War and A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.
