"Legendary politician and military strategist Winston Churchill was a master not only on the battlefield but also of the page and podium. Over the course of forty books and countless speeches, broadcasts, and news items he addresses a country at war and at peace, thrilling with victory but uneasy with its shifting role on the world's stage" (Rosetta). The present set contains all seven volumes of his speeches, as Churchill identified the Nazi threat to Europe, rallied British troops and citizens during times of hardship, and ultimately moved into peacetime with an eye toward the nation's shifting role on the modern world stage.
