Description

Taken from various foreign affairs articles that Churchill had written for newspapers, this book was first published on 27th June, 1939 less than three months prior to the outbreak of World War II. It contains many reservations and warnings against Hitler and the Nazis that proved all too prophetic. Signed a year after the end of the the war, by the man who led the country to victory, makes it all the more poignant.
