The fourth of Churchill’s grandly ambitious four-volume A History of the English-Speaking Peoples begins with the conclusion of the Napoleonic Wars—and ends with the Boer War of 1902. In it, Churchill makes an impassioned argument for the crucial role played by the English-speaking people in exporting not just economic benefits, but political freedom. Written in Churchill’s characteristically compelling style, this volume is the only one in the series to benefit from Churchill’s own personal experience as a soldier and a wartime journalist during the Boer War. It provides fascinating reading for those interested in world history and England’s impact on it. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 “for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” Over a 64-year span, Churchill published over 40 books, many multi-volume definitive accounts of historical events to which he was a witness and participant. All are beautifully written and as accessible and relevant today as when first published. During his fifty-year political career, Churchill served twice as Prime Minister in addition to other prominent positions—including President of the Board of Trade, First Lord of the Admiralty, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Home Secretary. In the 1930s, Churchill was one of the first to recognize the danger of the rising Nazi power in Germany and to campaign for rearmament in Britain. His leadership and inspired broadcasts and speeches during World War II helped strengthen British resistance to Adolf Hitler—and played an important part in the Allies’ eventual triumph. One of the most inspiring wartime leaders of modern history, Churchill was also an orator, a historian, a journalist, and an artist. All of these aspects of Churchill are fully represented in this collection of his works. ABOUT THE SERIES Over two decades in the making, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples provides an in-depth look at how history was affected by Britain, America, and English-speaking nations throughout the world—from the time of Julius Caesar’s invasion to the Boer War of 1902. Midway through the writing of this work, Churchill was called back to government service—ultimately taking the role of Prime Minister during World War II. Once he finally published the work, in the 1950’s, it became a best-seller—receiving excellent reviews not only from the public, but also from professional scholars and academics. It is a work of narrative history that has stood—and will continue to stand—the test of time.
