This six-book series is Churchill’s personal memoirs.
The Rise of Hitler and Indifference of European Leaders
The Gathering Storm depicts the rise of Hitler and the indifference of the leaders of the European democracies to the clouds of the gathering storm. Churchill incorporates contemporary documentation and his reminiscence in this opening memoir. Churchill’s mastery of English is reason enough to read this book.
Statesman and Leader of Historic Proportions
I like what was said in a review on Amazon.com, “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 Events Between World War One and World War Two
The book tells the story of the events between World War One and World War Two. Churchill shows how key events were ignored or the people simply hoped they would go away without dealing with them. The resulting inaction allowed many of the later events to occur, thus escalating the size and difficulty of the task.
Nobel Prize in Literature
Sir Winston Churchill won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 for this book and the other five books in the series.
