Présentation de l'éditeur

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874-1965) was a British statesman, soldier, and writer. A graduate of Sandhurst, he fought in India, the Sudan, and South Africa. In 1900 he was elected to Parliament. Churchill was the first lord of the admiralty (1911-1915) in World War I until disgraced by the failure of the Dardanelles campaign, which he had advocated. He afterwards served in numerous cabinet positions in the Liberal government of Lloyd George. A Conservative after 1924, he was Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1924 to 1929; his revaluation of the pound was a component leading to the general strike of 1926. Not in office from 1929 to 1939, Churchill broadcast ignored warnings of the danger of Nazi Germany. In 1940, seven months after the outbreak of World War II, he succeeded Neville Chamberlain as prime minister. His rousing oratory, his vigor, and his refusal to make peace with Hitler were critical to sustaining British resistance from 1940 to 1942. Before the United States entrance’ into the war, he met President Franklin D. Roosevelt at sea for crucial talks. He twice addressed the American Congress, twice went to Moscow, and attended a series of international conferences, including the Yalta Conference. Following the postwar Labour victory in 1945, he became leader of the opposition. In 1951 he was once more elected prime minister; he was knighted in 1953 and retired in 1955. Winston Churchill was the author of many histories, biographies, and memoirs, and in 1953 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature.

For this price what more do you need. A rare chance to savour the intellect of one of the 20th Centuries greatest. Poignant, amusing, incisive, and revealing. More than enough!!

Very witty, and concise. Churchill was very interesting, and quite funny as well. A great leader in a very difficult time in London's history.

Winston Churchill is one of my favorite people in history. I read everything I can get my hands on about him. I had not realized there were so many quotes by Churchill until I read this book. Here are a couple of my favorites. "The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may divide it, but in the end; there it is". As a lover of books I really enjoyed this one. "Writing a book is an adventure to begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling it out to the public". And lastly, "You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life". There are so many great quotes in the book it will keep you constant occupied with it. Now if I can just work some of the quotes into my everyday speaking and writing I will sound well read. I read this as an e-book on my Kindle app on my Ipad.

All the well known and some more obscure but nevertheless wonderful bits of Churchillian wit, sarcasm and literary genius in one small well priced volume. Must read.

This man, Mr. Churchill, is my Hero & Mentor and has been, for many, many, years. However, he must share these titles and everything I have ever felt for the man,with, Mr. Franklin Delano Roosevelt...Both are men I have looked up to for years and I am constantly researching their books, for historical facts as well as their positions on WWII issues. There is far too much to write about both men but this is about his quotations. He is, was and will always be, a brilliant man. You, too, can find this out by reading his quotations book. It is easy reading but very enjoyable.
