This volume of Churchill's history of the Second World War recounts the events of 1941 surrounding America's entry into the War, Hitler's march on Russia, and the alliance between Britain and America.

After the first forty days we were alone, writes Churchill. This edition is part two of Churchill's own abridgement of his original six-volume history of the Second World War.

Please note: This book was originally published in six volumes:

1. The Gathering Storm
2. Their Finest Hour
3. The Grand Alliance
4. The Hinge of Fate
5. Closing the Ring
6. Triumph and Tragedy

Churchill then condensed these into four volumes, which have since been released as one, rather hefty, publication. This is an unabridged recording of Churchill's condensed volume, broken up into four parts, as follows:

1. Milestone to Disaster
2. Alone
3. The Grand Alliance
4. Triumph and Tragedy

    " Churchill writes his momentous memoirs with great compassion and in a compelling way. He really guides you through and leaves nothing out which is worth saying. Here we find German driving east and Japan attacking Pearl Harbour. As always, the Prime Minster's Personal Minutes section adds great depth to the book-these being a summary of all communications received during the period covered by the book. "

    " A brilliant summary by Winston Churchill of events surrounding the Second World War from his personal involvement and perspective. This is a masterpiece of historical non-fiction and a must read for any WWII enthusiast. "

    " Volume IV of Churchill's history/memoir of WWII. This volume takes the reader up through America's joinder in the war. Churchill claims he knew that the war had been won after America entered; it was just a matter of time before America's industrial might ground the Axis into the dust. This may be a bit of an overstatement on Churchill's part - looking forward from 1941, one could not have been certain how the war would come out - but it accurately describes what ultimately happened. "

    " This series is an excellent primer on the overall strategic swings of WWII, slowly more historical bits and pieces are clinking into place in my head. "

    " Excellently written! Worth every minute of the time it takes to read. "

    " Churchill's history of year three of World War II. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl | 11/3/2013

    " A personal recollection of his central role in the Allies victory. Very enjoyable. "

    " The Kindle edition was clearly a rush job: sloppy OCR, inadequate proofreading (in this edition, the Nazi dictator is some fella named Hider), minimal formatting. But a fascinating read, nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 10/19/2013

    " Going through the audio book version of this great series condensed to 4 volumes from the original 6 volumes. This is book three with the British starting to win battles and the Americans finally getting into the fight. Interesting recounting of Churchill's dealings with Stalin and De Gaulle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick\ | 3/15/2012

    " A most amazing series. So lucky in War, so gifted in words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 2/25/2012

    " The only critique of this engrossing, beautifully-written, primary-source account is that responses to many of Churchill's communications to Roosevelt, Stalin, etc. were not published. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave Douglas | 1/3/2012

    " I acually started The Grand Alliance before Their Finest Hour by mistake. I had to backtrack and see how the Brits threw men and material all over the world trying to stop Germany. Amazing how they fought virtually alone for the first years of the war. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 10/19/2011

    " Amazing how many day to day type details he had to concern himself with. Should we grow turnips instead of potatoes? What shoudl the punishment be for an Englishman saying that Hitler is a better leader than Churchill ect. "
