"The Great Republic is Sir Winston Churchill's personal vision of American history, from the arrival of the first European settlers to the dawn of the Cold War, edited by his grandson, the historian and journalist Winston S. Churchill. The book is a retelling of the American story, including some of the best short histories of the Revolutionary War and the Civil War ever written. The bulk of this book, America's history up to the twentieth century, has until now been found only within Churchill's much longer four-volume A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1953. The chapters on America from that larger work have been knit together into a whole, and to them Winston S. Churchill has added essays and speeches of his grandfather's, many never before published in book form, to bring the book up to the mid-twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.… (mehr)

You may know your American history quite well, but if you haven’t heard the story told in the elevated phraseology of Sir Winston Churchill, you are truly missing out. He doesn’t pull any punches, offering a share of the bad along with the good, and yet when you hear it all pulled together with such insight and lofty rhetoric, it makes the revisit to familiar places totally worthwhile. I listened to the reading by Winston S. Churchill, the grandson the author and editor of this volume. His voice and cadence are a perfect addition to the story. I didn’t care so much for the grandson’s introduction, but once we got down to Sir Winston’s history, it was nothing but pleasure and inspiration. Highly recommended! ( )
