This history will endure; not only because Sir Winston has written it, but also because of its own inherent virtues its narrative power, its fine judgment of war and politics, of soldiers and statesmen, and even more because it reflects a tradition of what Englishmen in the hey-day of their empire thought and felt about their country's past."" The Daily Telegraph Spanning four volumes and many centuries of history, from Caesars invasion of Britain to the start of World War I, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples stands as one of Winston Churchills most magnificent literary works. Begun during Churchills wilderness years when he was out of government, first published in 1956 after his leadership through the darkest days of World War II had cemented his place in history and completed when Churchill was in his 80s, it remains to this day a compelling and vivid history. The second volume The New World explores the emergence of Britain on the world stage and a turbulent period at home: from Henry VIIIs break with Rome and the English Reformation to the fending off of the Spanish Armada and the schism between parliament and crown that led to the civil war, the fall and rise of the monarchy and the rule of Oliver Cromwell. The book also covers the historic journey of the Mayflower that saw the English-speaking peoples arrival in the Americas.
