HASH(0x9f8d5cb4) out of 5 stars Churchill's Own Words - no political spin, just a straight account of history. Aug. 27 2012
By JBS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I had long been meaning to learn more about Winston Churchill. My only knowledge of him was the occasional quote attributed to him and the general sense, through cultural osmosis, that he was a great leader. I had never read or watched anything more in depth. This book was a great introduction.

Blood, Sweat and Tears, a collection of Churchill's speeches, following his ascension to the office of Prime Minister, and covering the buildup to, and the first years of the war, is an impressive, first-hand look at one of the boldest leaders of our time.

Churchill's rhetoric is pragmatic, with a sense of urgency. He sends no mixed messages and doesn't mince words. He lays everything out on the table - the dangers forthcoming, what needs to be done to counter the coming threats, and the extent of the damage being inflicted, once the war begins. Churchill pulls no punches, he levels with people that the current circumstances are difficult and that their actions must be stalwart.

There is no political spin in this book - just one leader's words, plain and simple, to his people at a time of great crisis. It was impressive to read the words of a leader who understood exactly the gravity of the situation he and his countrymen were facing, and led with such decisive and unabashed action. Historical figures such as Winston Churchill occur once in a lifetime; if even that.

The reason I gave this 4 out of 5 stars is because there were some dry spots where Churchill goes over some of the general housekeeping items of that particular month - lost ships, ammunition production numbers, changes of staff within the government, etc. These announcements were, of course, essential duties to the post, but make for boring items to the modern reader.

HASH(0x9f5ebae0) out of 5 stars Good WWII book Dec 2 2001
By D_MSU - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a good book for anyone interested in WWII history. His speeches give Great Britain's point of view durning WWII, even before the war begins. America is mentioned several times in the book, but does this book does not give a very detailed description of what is going on in America durning this time. The book focuses on the war in Europe and Africa only. Japan is rarely mentioned. Overall this is a good book, comprised of Churchill's speeches.

HASH(0x9eea2f90) out of 5 stars A revelation. These interminable speeches to the Commons! ... July 6 2014
By Jan Dallas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A revelation. These interminable speeches to the Commons! Turgid English and insultingly Vulger rhetoric, the future uplands, the menace of evil, the lack of a moral centre. Now we see how Poland was forgotten. Truly the core of modern politics. A. Salutary lesson. Dr Ian Dallas.
