Book Description

Winston Churchill’s six-volume history of the cataclysm that swept the world remains the definitive history of the Second World War. Lucid, dramatic, remarkable both for its breadth and sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it is universally acknowledged as a magnificent reconstruction and is an enduring, compelling work that led to his being awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. Closing the Ring chronicles the period between June 1943 and July 1944 as the Allies consolidated their gains towards a drive to victory the fall of Mussolini, Hitler’s secret weapon’, the mounting air offensive on Germany, strategies to defeat Japan and the plans for D Day.

About Author

Winston S. Churchill

An English political leader and author of the twentieth century; he became prime minister shortly after World War II began and served through the end of the war in Europe. Churchill symbolized the fierce determination of the British to resist conquest by the Germans under Adolf Hitler. He forged a close alliance with Franklin D. Roosevelt of the United States and Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union in opposition to Germany. Stunningly defeated in elections in 1945, he returned to office as prime minister for several years in the 1950s.

Churchill was known for his fine oratory. When he became prime minister, he said, “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.” Concerning the British airmen who fought in the Battle of Britain, he said, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” He originated the phrase “Iron Curtain.” As an author, he is especially remembered for two histories, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples and The Second World War.

Churchill’s appearance was distinctive, with his bowler hat, cigars, portly frame, balding head, and two-finger “V for Victory” sign.
