About this title:

Synopsis: Hanging the chronicle and discussion of great military and political events upon the thread of his personal experiences, Sir Winston Churchill provides an immediate and current account of all the tremendous events of the coming of war as they unfolded. THE GATHERING STORM explores the events of the period between the end of the Great War and the beginning of the Second World War and details Sir Winston Churchill's belief that the latter should never have been allowed to occur. Mankind, he asserts, must learn from the lessons of the past as 'There was never a war more easy to stop than that which has just wrecked what was left of the world from the previous struggle.'

About the Author: Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom throughout the Second World War. Throughout his long and distinguished political career his writing was prolific. He was the author of 42 books and won the NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE in 1953 for his 'mastery of historical and biographical description'. Regarded by many as the greatest British Prime Minister in history.
