Winston Churchill recounts the end of WWII and its aftermath, in the conclusion of his majestic six-volume history.   In Triumph and Tragedy, British prime minister Winston Churchill provides in dramatic detail the endgame of the war and the uneasy meetings between himself, Stalin, and Truman to discuss plans for rebuilding Europe in the aftermath of devastation.   Beginning with the invasion of Normandy, the heroic landing of the Allied armies and the most remarkable amphibious operation in military history, Churchill watches as the uneasy coalition that had knit itself together begins to fray at Potsdam, foreshadowing the birth of the Cold War.   Triumph and Tragedy is part of the epic six-volume account of World War II told from the viewpoint of a man who led in the fight against tyranny, and enriched with extensive primary sources including memos, letters, orders, speeches, and telegrams, day-by-day accounts of reactions as the drama intensifies. Throughout these volumes, we listen as strategies and counterstrategies unfold in response to Hitler's conquest of Europe, planned invasion of England, and assault on Russia, in a mesmerizing account of the crucial decisions made as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.… (mehr)

    Churchill. Der Kapf ums Überleben 1940-1965. von Lord Moran (Scotland)

The concluding volume of Churchill's World War 2 history, opening with the invasion Normandy and concluding with his electoral defeat just a few months after the war ended. Told with distinctive style and flair. ( )

D-Day to losing the general election in the middle of Potsdam. As with the other volumes, some of the best stuff is tucked away in Appendix C; from why the British troops got less beer per week in Italy than the Americans to jet development to dealing with war crimes. ( )
  encephalical | Jul 3, 2018 |
The closing book of Churchill's magnificent series on World War II, this book is masterful in coloring the nuances of the final year of the war. Sprinkled throughout the book are numerous letters between Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin and later Truman - the narrative weaves between these letters filling in gaps and explaining context.

The book ends somewhat abruptly, as Churchill is unexpectedly voted out of office, and the tone of the book changes somewhat as if Churchill is uninterested in events if he isn't personally involved in them.

Regardless, the impending dread of the Iron curtain and Britain's powerlessness to stop the Iron curtain looms over this book. The death of Roosevelt, Stalin's deceit, and Britain's impotence all fatefully lead down one path - the 50 year Cold War.

TRIONFO e TRAGEDIA
Al sesto ed ultimo volume della sua mo­ numentale Storia della seconda guerra mon­diale, Winston Churchill ha voluto dare il titolo significativo di "Trionfo e Trage­dia"; infatti, proprio nei mesi in cui le Nazioni Unite riportarono le loro maggio­ri e decisive vittorie, si delinearono i motivi delle future divergenze che dovevano an­cora una volta deludere le speranze del­ l'umanità in una pace generale. Nella pri­ma parte di questo volume: "L'onda della vittoria", si narrano le vicende del secondo semestre 1944 dallo sbarco in Normandia al contrattacco tedesco nelle Ardenne. Nella seconda parte, dal titolo "La cortina di fer­ro", sonoillustrati gli avvenimenti che se­gnarono il definitivo tracollo della bilancia in favore degli Alleati con gli accordi di Jalta, l'invasione della Germania, 'la fine di Mussolini e di Hitler, la vampata apoca­littica di Hiroshima. A questo crescendo di trionfi si allaccia, culminando nella confe­renza di Potsdam, rapprofondirsi di una grande ombra: lo scacco morale che i vin­citori subirono nell'incapacità di raggiun­gere un vero accordo per la ricostruzione mondiale su una base nuova e fattiva. E' qui che l'uomo Churchill balza in primo piano nella vicenda col suo impegno di statista per il quale l'umanità e l'onore hanno ancora un significato pur nel quadro di una politica realistica, qualunque possa essere l'esito delle gravi incertezze che oggi ci travagliano, a causa del solco fra Orien­te ed Occidente che invano ci si è sforzati di colmare. L'azione e le parole di que­sto grande uomo politico moderno rimarranno documento di uno sforzo since­ro compiuto per gli ideali di una giusta e stabile convivenza civile fra le Nazioni.
