Churchill's line in The Gathering Storm has carried conviction for two reasons: after 1940 no-one wanted to be associated with appeasement because it had failed; after 1945 everyone wanted to have been prescient about the virtues of 'The Grand Alliance'. And the very march of events after 1945 seemed, in Churchill's own eyes, to point up the morality of his stand in the 1930s. 1940 - Myth and Reality by Clive Ponting (1990).

This is book number four of 5 books. Like the previous three is was totally fascinating to read. This is the turning point in the War and it is a welcome relief. The big event was the entry of the US into the war. That changed everything. You have to marvel how England managed to hand on like it did. They were lucky in a way that Hitler went after Russia instead of dealing with England. They were damned lucky.

It is fascinating to read Churchill's description of some of the key characters in the war: Roosevelt, Stalin, Marshall, Eisenhower, etc. And his writings on when he was Africa and Russia and the meetings he had there and the sights he saw were mesmerizing. Once again, to get through this all I read his writings but skip over all his printed correspondence, notes and speeches he has in the book. I would be dead before I read all of that as well.

This book ends around June of 1943. There is a lot more to come. This is like living history told by a player who was not only there but he was in the thick of it. Thank God he was.
I bought all six volumes and am halfway through the third. This is a unique work. It is a detailed history, but unlike a historian, he is able to write about things said in cabinet meeting which were not recorded in minutes, or the tone and affect of the Japanese Ambassador, as he promised not to enter the war. It is also very personal and candid. He takes full ownership for all decisions, including the biggest failures. And he has a dry wit. What is fascinating is thus far he has only expressed satisfaction that British losses in a battle were a fraction of the enemy's. Nothing is said about the tragedy of each life lost. And, he expects British and Colonial soldiers to fight to the death under hopeless situations, when asked, for strategic reasons. It amazed me that he knew his people so well. It gives you a sense of what it feels like to fight a battle for survival of your nation and freedom.
I've been waiting a long time to find another set of these books! I had them many years ago, and read through four volumes, but then they got misplaced during a move. By then, they were no longer in print, so finding a nice used set was great. I tried ordering a new set from another seller, but it never arrived.

Winston Spencer Churchill was one of the most prolific writers of his day, and this series about World War II earned him the Nobel Prize for literature. Yes, he was a controversial man, politician, tactician, leader, and person. He was manipulative, peevish, charming, thunderous, cajoling, brilliant, and exasperating. But, along with others like him - Gen. Dwight David Eisenhower, Field Marshall Sir Bernard Law Montgomery, Chief of Staff Gen. George C. Marshall, Gen. George S. Patton, Gen. Omar Bradley, and Field Marshall Sir Harold Alexander - he was one of a group of the best men in the right place at the right time who fought the Third Reich to its demise.
Read this excellent Churchill book many years ago. Decided to read it again as a means of looking back at history in order to see the past more clearly, and thus better my understanding of the years between l939-l945. His book was/still is an insightful analysis of the most critical and threatening years in the history of Europe and Western Civilization.
As a writer, Churchill is masterful, unmatched as a story teller. As an historian he is clearly single minded. In his constancy of view there is, even after all these years, an intellectual honesty and an awareness of all the events of the "Gathering Storm" which was about to topple governments, create new countries, introduce new reasons for governments, and lead to the deaths of uncounted millions of people. The Gathering Storm is/was a prediction of the many changes that have been the story of our world since the end of WW 2. Churchill's book tells the story of the tragic consequences of flawed decisions by the governments and the people of the "West." His book is still today a reminder that ignoring a Gathering Storm may lead to woeful consequences. Jim Dunne
If you want to learn about leadership then read about leaders, and if you want to learn about history then read those who lived it. This book checks both of these boxes, and I found it to be engaging and very eye-opening. I learned a great deal about the preWorld War II period, about the development of Nazi Germany, and about how the Allies failed to stop the war numerous times before it started. Being an American I have generally learned about the war from that perspective, but hearing the story from a significant leader in Great Britain has been a very enlightening experience. It is perhaps to easy to look back and wish things would have been done differently, but this book does a fine job of helping the reader understand the various perspectives of the events leading up to the war. It's not a black and white story, but rather many shades of grey. I especially enjoyed learning more about the complicated involvement of the United States and the Soviet Union. Certainly no one is happy that World War II took place, but I am very glad that we have valuable texts like this to help us learn from such a significant tragedy.

I am only at 55% of this volume but have decided that I not only want to finish this book, but get the rest of the volumes in this series. Mr. Churchhill is an excellent author and his books are easy to read. It's like he is speaking to you not writing a typical history book.

The parallels between what was happening in England and Europe in the 1920s and 30s and what is happening worldwide now, in 2016, is eerily similar. Sometimes I feel I am reading the news instead of a historical chronology.

This is a must read!
