Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Winston Churchill was not only a statesman and leader of historic proportions, he also possessed substantial literary talents. These two factors combine to make The Gathering Storm a unique work. The first volume of Churchill's memoirs, this selection is broken into two parts. The first, "From War to War," consists of Churchill's critical observations on the settlement of World War I and its place in the causes of the Second World War. The second volume contains letters and memoranda from the British government--of which Churchill was part--as the country plunged unprepared into war. This stands as the best of history: written as it was made, by the man who made it.

"It is our immense good fortune that a man who presided over this crisis in history is able to turn the action he lived through into enduring literature." The New York Times

Wirklich eine Buchserie, die vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Entwicklungen in Europa durchaus aktuell ist. Darüber hinaus ist der Sprachstil packend. Churchill hat immerhin den Literaturnobelpreis für diese Bücher bekommen.

Man sollte sich allerdings auch biografisch mit Churchill befassen, da so einige Bewertungen durch ihn besser verständlich werden.

Sehr gut komplementär zu lesen mit Sebastian Hafner "Germany, Doktor Jekyll & Mister Hyde".

I was happy to see Churchill's works on Kindle. It took me a little while to get used to the level of detail and slow pace of the book. This is very detailed, lots of letters and speeches from the 1920-1940s and a lot of names. At first I was a bit overwhelmed, but after a few chapters, the book pulled me in and I really started reading.

From Churchill's point of view the war unfolds from the mistakes at the end of WWI, the political play for peace, the Twilight war and the Norwegian campaign. It's wonderfully written. The best part is how it really manages to convey the haste and patience required to run the war - decisions must be taken now, resources divided between the now and in two years, the amount of time it will take to build a battleship... Can't wait to read about the Battle of Britain in the next one.

One of the very best books from the British perspective aboout the mainly European developments in politics which finally lead to WW II and an utmost interesting description of how the Allied Nations acted militarily and politically during its conduct.
Brilliant.

I bought Churchill's 6-volume history of the Second World War many years ago, but did not find the strength to begin reading it until some time later. The effect was immediate. Although it took me over a year to read all of it, that was only because I have long had the habit of reading a number of books concurrently. I simply couldn't put Churchill down. To say that the story of World War II is a gripping one, is to put it mildly. How much more gripping do you think it might be in the hands of that one unique individual who was both one of the central players and the recorder of the events themselves. At times, I found myself actually wanting certain historical events to go in favour of the Allies although, naturally, I already knew the outcome! Such is the effect of Churchill's writing.
In the second volume "Their Finest Hour," Britain was holding the fort against Hitler alone. After Dunkirk, spirits were low all over the place and the value of Dr Goebells's secret weapon was able to come into play with great effect. One can imagine the feeling of the citizenry of Britain at that time, trapped as they felt themselves to be in that little island, with an unbeaten army just across the channel snarling at them. The whys and wherefores of the actions of both Hitler and the German General Staff at that time, can be discussed until you are blue in the face. The fact is that, although most people on both sides of the Atlantic thought they were about to hop across and finish the job, the Germans hesitated, mainly for lack of a plan, and lost the chance. I don't know for sure if Churchill also thought the British might have been defeated in July, August or September of 1940, but from the end of that odd period of stalemate, he never looked back.

"Their Finest Hour" is Volume II of Winston Churchill's magnus opus on World War II. Beginning with Churchill's ascension to the office of Prime Minister, it continues to the end of 1940. It covers a time of the events of legend. On these pages we read of the end of the Phony War with the Blitzkrieg on France, the evacuation from Dunkirk, the fall of France, the emergence of DeGaulle, and the titanic Battle of Britain that may have been a turning point of the war.

The sudden and shocking collapse of France is told by one who struggled mightily to hold things together as the situation disintegrated around him. Churchill's repeated trips to France to assess conditions and to try to rally the French makes for fascinating reading. Churchill's exhortations to continue the struggle, the French demands for more British commitment, the frantic pleas for an American declaration of war and the incredible offer of a perpetual union between Great Britain and France make for a rapid sequence of unique events that are stranger than any novelist's fiction. As the battle lines dissolved the incredible rescue of the BEF and other forces from Dunkirk saved the troops that were to form the nucleus of the band that would return to France four years later. The fall of France would place the French fleet in jeopardy which led to intense negotiations and the unfortunate British attack at the fleet at Oran.

When the Battle of France was over, the Battle of Britain began. The Battle of Britain was the battle in the skies over Britain in which the RAF and the Luftwaffe fought for the air supremacy that was crucial to any German plans to invade England.
