Sir Winston Churchill's greatest speeches digitally remastered, selected, and introduced by his grandson Winston S. Churchill.
Winston Churchill steered Britain through its darkest hours during World War II. He was one of the 20th century's greatest orators, and the speeches that he painstakingly composed, rehearsed, and delivered inspired courage in an entire nation. Churchill's output was prolific; his complete speeches alone contain over five million words.
On this special recording, the best and most important of those have been brought together in this historic volume. Using digitally remastered archive recordings, they include: "Blood, toil, tears and sweat", "The Few", "This was their finest hour", "We can take it!", "An Iron Curtain has descended", "Never give in!", "A total and unmitigated defeat", and "Give us the tools".
Winston Churchill oversaw some of the most important events the world has ever seen and was the most eloquent and expressive statesman of his age. These speeches help reveal the man behind the defiant orator and demonstrate why, in a national poll, Sir Winston Churchill was voted "Greatest Briton of All Time".

Purchase with Caution
When purchasing, be careful to note that these speeches are not entirely Winston Churchill, but are only pieces of his actual speeches. MUCH of the speeches are spliced between Churchill, and I believe his grandson as narrator, maybe someone else...
I was honestly a bit disappointed. I thought that, considering that this audiobook is GREATLY abridged from the actual written compilation, that the speeches selected would contain much more of Churchill's actual orations.
Nevertheless, this purchase is not a total bust, but is not what I expected.
Never Give In!
Some of these speeches are not as Churchill delivered them during the war, since recording was not allowed in the House of Commons. He recorded them after the war for Decca for a multidisc album of his speeches. The postwar recordings sometimes lack the fire and vigor he felt in wartime, which can be heard in the radio speeches. Even so, it is good to hear all of them in his own voice.
This is really great if you have to do a report on Winston Churchill. It totally is helpful
