Winston Churchill 'mobilized the English language and sent it into battle'. President John F. Kennedy conferring Honorary US Citizenship, April 1963. Winston Churchill was the most eloquent and expressive statesman of his age. When Britain stood alone and all but defenceless, with his resolute and pugnacious tone and puckish sense of humour he inspired his fellow-countrymen to resist, to fight and to conquer. While the definitive collection of Churchill's speeches fills eight volumes, here, his grandson, Winston S. Churchill, has put together a personal selection of his favourite speeches in a single volume. He has chosen from his grandfather's entire output covering the whole of Churchill's life, from his maiden speech to his last days. It includes Churchill's best-known speeches as well as some that have never been published in popular form.
