"Legendary politician and military strategist Sir Winston Churchill was a master not only of the battlefield but also of the page and podium. Over the course of countless speeches, broadcasts, and news items he addressed a country at war and at peace...Well before Britain entered World War II, Churchill warned his government about the growing Nazi threat, even as many European leaders were still urging caution and diplomacy. In this collection of forty-one speeches from 1928-1938, the politician's prescience and political skill -- vital to Britain's role as the first country to stand against Hitler -- are on full display" (Rosetta).
