Victory was the sixth volume of Churchill’s collected World War II speeches (covering 18 January-16 August 1945). The last eight months of the war are here: Yalta, the United Nations, the death of Roosevelt, the German surrender, VE-Day, the Atomic bomb, the surrender of Japan and, finally, the General Election that throws Churchill out of office. Churchill’s speeches were collected and published yearly throughout the war in both the U.K. and the U.S.
