The Second World War book. CLOSING THE RING covers the conflict from June 1943 to June 1944, extending from the invasion of Sicily to the eve of D-Day, June 6, 1944. As in the previous volumes, Churchill views the war from the perspective of British Prime Minister and Minister of Defense. The grave differences between Churchill and his "great friend" Roosevelt are more pronounced here than.

The second world war. Volume VI. Triumph and tragedy. I did not wake till eight. When I rang my Principal Private Secretary came in with the evening budget of news from all over the world. Winston Churchill began to write the first of what were to be the six volumes of The Second World War in 1946. It was a work he had expected to postpone to a later stage of his life, since he had looked forward in 1945 to extending his wartime leadership into the peace. The rejection of his party by the electorate was a heavy blow, which might have dulled his urge to write.

The Second World War is a history of the period from the end of the First World War to July 1945, written by Winston Churchill. Churchill labelled the "moral of the work" as follows: "In War: Resolution, In Defeat: Defiance, In Victory: Magnanimity, In Peace: Goodwill". From Britain's darkest and finest hour to the great alliance and ultimate victory, the Second World War remains the most pivotal event of the twentieth century.

Winston Churchill's "Closing the Ring" is a masterpiece of the actual words by the actual man who lead the actual effort against Germany in World War II. Any discussion of this book should begin with the author's name, not the title, because the source makes the material matter more.

You are there, in the moments that changed the world. History is relayed, stunning in its depth even if you have studied the era. If the size of the book is daunting, know that each chapter has its own table of contents so each topic can receive the focus the reader wishes to give it.

Churchill wrote six volumes to recount World War II. I'm confident you can start with any of them because I began my walk with Winston right here, in the fifth.

The constant thread through these hundreds of pages is that of preparing for the Normandy invasion. June 6, 1944 marks the end of this book. Never has the journey to the destination been more interesting, more fact-filled, more clear, or more complete. No part of the campaign is ignored, from the Atlantic to Pacific, Mediterranean to Baltic, land, sea or air.

Maps were crisp and highly readable on the Kindle edition, something not true for some past reviewers. This work also contains actual text of telegrams and letters between leaders as well as to some field commanders.

I trust and wholly recommend this first-hand account with its vivid detail and exceptional insight. "Closing the Ring" opens the mind to history, war, and character. Thank you, Mr. Winston Churchill, for skillfully sharing, and shaping, these moments of history for us.

Winston Churchill's "Closing the Ring: The Second World War, Volume 5 (Winston Churchill World War II Collection)" is the 5th volume in his "Second World War" historical series. As with the other volumes, it's inconceivably great, awe inspiring, and brings World War II to life. It forms just one segment of the timeline he's documenting and really can't be read stand-alone. So, start with the first book. I'm rating it (and the series) at an Excellent 5 stars out of 5.

The defeat of Nazi Germany was led by a man who's entire life was engaged at every opportunity to gain experiences in both armed services, army and navy, but in responsible roles of the political affairs of his county. This preparation and accumulation of talent, wisdom, insight from the trenches of 3 wars, knowledge of world history spanning centuries was critical to the allies of all countries involved on the European, African, and mid east soil. Without PM Churchill's guidance there is little doubt that the Continental war would not have been conducted as effectively as it was. The USA had the resourced to out waste Hitler and win the war but at a much higher cost of treasure and lives.
The leaders of the 'free world' couldn't have accomplished this great effort without Winston Churchill.

Churchill writes narrative as well as he gives speeches. The fascinating thing about this volume is the not yet recognized decline of Great Britain and its empire by Churchill. Even though Britain played a big role in the war it is slowly being moved to the margins. This was apparent during the Tehran conference when Roosevelt refused to meet in private with Chruchill because he was concerned it would look like the Anglo-Americans were conspiring. Great reading.

However, this scanned version of Churchill's history is chock full of misspelled words. Couldn't someone at least proof read it before putting it out there in digital form?

Winston Churchill's biography of the father he idolized is a fine example of his writing - colorful, detailed, brilliantly phrased, and full of insight, especially to those interested in British history of the late 19th century.

Unfortunately, this edition of the book takes all the joy out of reading it. It is, as far as I can tell, a print-on-demand version made from a computer scan of the original two-volume text. In order to fit it into one rather thin volume (approx. 300 pages) it is printed in nearly unreadable 8-point type, which will strain all but the strongest eyes. Due to the vagaries of the scan/print process, there are random blank spaces spread here and there through the book, and dozens of places where the spaces between words are missing. Much of the text consists of quotations from letters written by Lord Randolph, but the computer reprint omits the indentations showing where these quotations begin and end, so that it is very difficult to tell where the Lord Randolph's letters end and Winston's text resumes. The original had numerous illustrations, including many cartoons from the British magazine Punch. These illustrations do not appear in this edition - but their captions remain, hanging by themselves in the middle of pages. And what the computer process has done to the potentially valuable index must be seen to be believed.

I can strongly recommend the original book - both volumes - to anyone interested in Winston Churchill, his father, or the history of Britain in this fascinating period. But spend a bit more money and find a decent, readable edition. Don't waste your money or your time on this virtually unreadable mashup of an important historical work.
