La description:

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874-1965) completed the original draft of his great history in 1939. His duties as First Lord of the Admiralty, Prime Minister and Minister of Defence were to postpone the final publication for some seventeen years. These four, fully indexed volumes comprise the only complete and unabridged edition of the masterwork of the man awarded the Noble Prize for Literature "for his mastery in historical and biographical presentations." Volume One: The Birth of Britain Traces the story of Britain from Roman times through the Tudors' ascension to the English throne in 1485, the eve of the discovery of the New World. Volume Two: The New World Two centuries of discovery, exploration, civil war, and massive changes in the English Monarchy, law and religion ending with the escape of James II in 1688. Volume Three: The Age of the Revolution A period of slightly more than 100 years saw three revolutions - each of which led to war between England and France. The volume ends with the treaties of 1815, which marked the end of Napoleon's Empire and the beginning of a European order that would last a hundred years. Volume Four: The Great Democracies The defeat of Napoleon left England uncontested master of a large portion of the world. The rise of the Empire is followed through the death of Queen Victoria and the end of the Boer War. America's Civil War and growth as a world power is also detailed.
