Winston Churchill's superlative account of the prelude to and events of the First World War is a defining work of 20th-century history. With dramatic narrative power Churchill reconstructs the action on the Western and Eastern Fronts, the wars at sea and in the air and the advent of tanks and U-boats.
Rich with personal insights, the first part of Churchill's magisterial book covers the years 1911 - 1914 and includes Ireland and the European balance, the mobilization of the Navy, the invasion of France and Turkey and the Balkans.
The World Crisis 1911 - 18
This is quite possibly the finest audiobook I have ever listened to, all three parts are superb. The narration is fantastic, to the point that its as if churchill was talking to you directly with his wonderful and unique style of writing. This book also stands out as although the land battles are described and discussed, Mr Churchill also elaborates and analyses the naval war with a personal insight as his role of First Lord.
