Synopsis

This volume tells Churchill's story from August 1945 through October 1951. During this time, Churchill traveled 55,000 miles, wrote more than 700 pieces of correspondence, delivered over 250 speeches, and authored nearly a dozen new articles as well as his memoirs of the Second World War. He lost the premiership to Clement Attlee of the Labour Partyin 1945 and then won it back in 1951 at nearly seventy-seven years old. He holidayed in France, Italy, and Morocco, visited America twice, and campaigned against socialism throughout Great Britain. He delivered his famous speech in Fulton, Missouri, where he made reference to the "iron curtain" and explained the principles and strategy that led to victory in the Cold War. All the while, he strove to do what he could as Leader of the Opposition to unify Europe, strengthen Britain, and maintain a close and special relationship with the United States.
