Edited and arranged by Sir Winston’s grandson, this volume distills everything Churchill wrote about America in his History of the English Speaking Peoples (about 230 pages) plus all of his major essays on the USA (about 130 pages). Also included are three Churchill essays on English Common Law, Magna Carta and Parliament (“America’s English Heritage”) and Churchill’s famous “what-if” story, “If Lee Had Not Won the Battle of Gettysburg.” Greeted enthusiastically on publication, this latest work demonstrates our author’s ability to keep on publishing long after he has left this vale of tears.
