Vintage Churchill

by Sam H on Jan 20, 2012

A revealing narrative from the viewpoint of First Lord of the Admiralty during the War to End All Wars. This book does not try to encompass every facet of the entire War. Although it does make reference to the land campaigns, it is mainly concerned with the sea and submarine battles. The section describing the conditions leading up to the War is very comprehensive. Great maps and illustrations. Followed by Churchill's Second World War, which is also a great read!


Winston was a Gift

by Nervana on Jan 17, 2008

Even though this book was a gift to my brother for Christmas, I believe that Churchill was a gift to the world. He was a very intelligent man with great intuition and understanding. After I lost my youngest daughter, I was given a magnet with one of his quotes, "If you're going through hell,.....keep going". It may seem harsh, but it gives me the strength to make it through another day. My brother has enjoyed the book immensely. Thank you so much.


Churchill's History Of Himself

by zalman8 on Aug 9, 2007

I turned to The World Crisis after reading Barbara Tuchman's GUNS OF AUGUST. Churchill concentrates almost exclusively on the naval war, in which he played an official part as Lord of the Admiralty. Tuchman is a better historian, and brings out telling details and small information that make her story leap off the page. Churchill's history of World War I sort of sinks with him.
