VICTORY by Winston S.  Churchill


Email this review


There are the 1945 speeches, from January through his defeat in the general election, a collection which covers a vital seven months in a fast changing world, months in which President Roosevelt died and Germany capitulated. In these months Churchill gave several surveys of events before the House; commented at length on Britain's intervention in Greece's Civil War; on Britain's contribution and losses; on the achievement of the C.R.I. command; on the Crimea Declaration and the three power conference; on the Curton line and its significance. He talked too of internal affairs; his political speeches in the election campaign are included; his tributes to General Eisenhower, to Franklin Roosevelt; his analysis of the world he believed the fighting men wanted to come back to (in definition of the Conservative Policy); his defense of the stand on unconditional surrender. There are the usual assortment of long speeches and short, of messages, statements, answers, etc. Only too fast the public forgets- and the market for these papers is shrinking.
