Winston Churchill ‘The Second World War’ Heron Books Edition

This is Churchill’s history of the epic struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed such a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. Churchill’s eloquence and insight frames the world-defining events of his time in truly enduring prose. This twelve-volume epic has been called “indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today.”

An attractive set of twelve volumes bound in quarter brown leather over olive brown simulated kid skin with an embossed gold bust on each cover with gilt banded decorations to the spines & covers. Each volume has decorative endpapers & a yellow plaited ribbon marker.

This set is heavily illustrated throughout with maps, diagrams & black/white photos researched & selected by R J Segelat.

  1. Greetings,
    Was this edition taken from the Chartwell Edition published by the Educational Book Company? That is the only other illustrated edition that I am aware of.
