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

    " Adored this book when I read it as a high school student who became hooked on Winston Churchill--started rereading recently. "

    " One of my favorite books ever. I read the entire WWII series and liked most of them very much (it was a long war, not all years equally interesting). But this was the best of them and the one to read, if you only want to read one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 1/6/2011

    " This is, quite simply, one of the most fascinating and amazing books I've ever read, giving a first-hand account of the years leading up to World War II. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise | 12/30/2010

    " Read this book in 2006. Don't recall. Must re-read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geegee | 10/14/2010

    " What a frustrating, illuminating, mindboggling picture of history between the 2 world wars. And frighteningly predictive for us today. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Harry | 9/25/2010

    " Churchill toots his own horn throughout this book on the early stages of the second World War. It lacks the perspective and scope necessary for great historical writing. If you are bored by endless paragraphs on naval armaments steer clear of this tedious snoozer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ajj | 9/17/2010

    " Read on Kindle. Get the physical book as it is a good source of info on the British side of the lead up to the Second World War. The maps and tables are quite hard to read on the Kindle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kazmo | 7/13/2010

    " A must read for anyone seeking insight into the subjects of WWII or Churchill himself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 4/26/2010

    " The first volume of the definitive work on WWII and the only one written by one of the four crucial leaders of that time. Surprisingly easy and fun to read. This book opened up my love of reading primary sources. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caterina | 4/9/2010

    " This is an amazing book. It's a history of the beginning of WWII from a perspective that no one else had or could have, namely Britain's savior. "
