Their Finest Hour
Winston Churchill
History
Aug 1, 2018
Winston Churchill’s six-volume history, The Second World War, was the prime impetus for his being awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953; in the years immediately after its publication, it provided the outlines for the standard narrative of the conflict from the Allied point of view. The second—and the best—book in the sextet, Their Finest Hour, covers the fall of France and the eight months of 1940 during which Britain stood alone against the Third Reich, with the author’s noble oratory often its first line of defense. This is history in the grand manner: compelling, sobering, stirring.

The 6 volumes are a slog, but well written at a noble level
