Product Description

Who can forget the words “We shall fight on the beaches. We
shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the
fields, and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We
shall never surrender!” They were uttered in 1940 by one of
the 20th century’s greatest orators, Winston Churchill, eager
to spur on his countrymen in their fight against Nazi
Germany. Now the great man’s grandson has gathered
Churchill’s most memorable words, spanning more than half a
century, in times of war and in times of peace. Part of
Churchill’s gift, his grandson writes, was his ability to
address his radio listeners “not as unseen masses but as
individuals-he envisioned his audience as a couple and their
family gathered around their coal fire in the cottage-home.”
Any admirer of Churchill’s will want to add this CD to their
library. This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R

From Booklist
Here’s an economical alternative to the eight-volume
collection of Winston Churchill’s public speeches published
in 1974. This one-volume condensation of the great man’s
declamations, done by his namesake and descendant, arranges
the oratory according to Churchill’s career path: those
delivered as a parvenu politician before World War I; as the
singed scapegoat for the Dardanelles fiasco; as a government
minister in the 1920s; while out of office in the 1930s, when
his warnings of the Nazi menace went unheeded. This edition’s
focus is inevitably the defiant Churchill of 1940, promising
naught but blood, toil, tears, and sweat; vowing never to
surrender; and apostrophizing the few in the Battle of
Britain. Although the editor pays homage to Churchill through
his selections and commentary, he also makes sure to include
unflattering, controversial speeches. The whole provides
context for the Churchillian phrases most see only in
excerpts. Gilbert Taylor
