The Great Republic collects all of Churchill’s major essays about the U.S.A. (approximately 130 pages), plus everything that he wrote about America in his History of the English-Speaking Peoples (approximately 230 pages). Also included are three Churchill essays about English Common Law, Magna Carta and Parliament (“America’s English Heritage”) along with his famous “what-if” story, “If Lee Had Not Won the Battle of Gettysburg.” Edited and arranged by Sir Winston’s grandson, the resulting volume constitutes an entirely new Churchill work.
This very good copy of a later printing of the First American edition in an unclipped dust jacket has been signed by Churchill’s grandson, “Winston S. Churchill” on the first front free endpaper.
