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. "
