The Dawn of Liberation was the fifth volume of Churchill’s collected World War II speeches (covering 22 February-31 December 1944). The last great events of the war are included: D-Day and the invasion of France, the Soviet advances in the East, the future of Poland (grim) and Greece (hopeful), and the V2 rocket bombs halted finally by the Allied armies rolling into Europe. Churchill’s speeches were collected and published yearly throughout the war in the U.K. and the U.S.
This is a very good copy of the scarce First American Edition in an edge-chipped dust jacket, with fractional loss at the spine head and some fading to the spine. The contents are fine.
Due to a print run of only 3,500 copies and no reprints, this is the rarest of the American war speech volumes.
