The collected speeches of the most eloquent and expressive statesman of his time

The only political leader to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, Winston Churchill used language as a weapon at a time when he possessed nothing more than an empty armory with which to fight his nation's enemies. In this major volume, David Cannadine-one of the foremost historians of modern Britain-selects thirty-three speeches ranging over fifty years, demonstrating how Churchill honed his rhetoric until the day when, in the words of Edward R. Murrow, "he mobilized the English language, and sent it into battle." A landmark of political speechmaking, perfect for the election year, Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat is an essential addition to the library of every Churchill fan.
