Description:

FIRST ENGLISH EDITIONS of Churchill's most important work in fine leather bindings. "In order to write The Second World War Churchill assembled a team of researchers under the leadership of his pre-war assistant, the Oxford historian William Deakin. Churchill and his team enjoyed the full co-operation of the cabinet secretary, Norman Brook, who gave them almost unlimited access to wartime files. In return Churchill submitted drafts of the book to be vetted by Whitehall, thus turning it into a semi-official history. His method was to have all the relevant documents set up in galley proof so that he could then insert linking passages or narratives of events. The tone and structure of the final text were unmistakably Churchillian, and so too were his personal recollections . Appearing in six volumes between 1948 and 1954, The Second World War was published in hardback in fifteen countries and translated into eleven languages. It was not history, Churchill insisted, but a contribution to history. Nevertheless he imprinted his version of events on the minds of a generation" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). The Second World War: The Gathering Storm; Their Finest Hour; The Grand Alliance; The Hinge of Fate; Closing the Ring; Triumph and Tragedy. London: Cassell & Co., Ltd., 1948-54. Octavo, modern three-quarter red polished calf, decorated spines with gilt lion devices, raised bands, top edges gilt. Six volumes. Fine condition, very handsomely bound. Bookseller Inventory #
