Collector's Guide

The War Speeches (“Definitive Edition”) repackaged the texts of the original seven, individually-published, wartime volumes of Churchill’s war speeches as a very handsomely produced three-volume set.  While “Definitive,” this set was not entirely complete; a handful of speeches deemed to be of “reduced significance” were omitted. Churchill favored greatly the beautiful design of this edition.
