Winston S. Churchill - Second World War - Vol' 3 (The Grand Alliance) (2nd Hand Hardback)
The 3rd Volume of Winston Churchill's 6 Volume War Memoirs.
The definitive, Nobel Prizewinning 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 with The Gathering Storm; moves on to Their Finest Hour, The Grand Alliance, The Hinge of Fate, and Closing the Ring; and concludes with Triumph and Tragedy.
Volume 3 - The Grand Alliance describes the end of an extraordinary period in British military history in which Britain stood alone against Germany.
Two crucial events brought an end of Britain's isolation. First is Hitler's decision to attack the Soviet Union, opening up a battle front in the East and forcing Stalin to look to the British for support. The second event is the bombing of Pearl Harbour. U.S. support had long been crucial to the British war effort, and Churchill documents his efforts to draw the Americans to aid, including correspondence with President Roosevelt.
