Churchill's War in Words transports the reader back to the storm-struck days of the Second World War. Focussing only on words used at the time, it reveals the way that Winston Churchill talked about the conflict in public and in private - and the way that he himself was viewed at the time by family, friends, politicians, military leaders, staff , voters, allies and enemies.Presented in chronological order and accompanied by short year-by-year introductions, the quotations convey afresh the full force of Churchill's oratory, the wit he displayed in the face of often appalling odds, and the hopes and fears that he inspired in those around him. Together they reveal to the modern reader what it was truly like to be locked in a struggle in which victory - or total defeat - was yet to be decided. Together they tell the extraordinary story of Churchill's War in Words.

"[A] pleasantly prepared small-sized coffee table book. Heavily illustrated with photographs, the volume provides quotes by Winston Churchill drawn mostly from his speeches as well as observations and comments about him by friends (Violet Bonham Carter), members of parliament (Henry Channon, Harold Nicholson), cabinet ministers (Anthony Eden), members of his private staff (John Colville), and enemies (Josef Goebbels)."--Winston Churchill Blog
