Volume 3 of Winston Churchill's four-volume sweeping historical account begins with Marlborough's victorious 1704 campaign at Blenheim in support of William of Orange-and ends with Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo in 1815. Here, Churchill tells the story of how Britain rose to world leadership during the Age of Revolution in the eighteenth century.

Churchill brings his considerable literary talents to bear in recounting events such as the plunging of the South Seas company stock, the Spanish and Austrian Successions, the Treaty of Utrecht, the Seven Years War, and the American and French revolutions with vivid narrative skill. This volume provides a fascinating overview of an extremely volatile period-a must-read for students of British and world history.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 "for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values."

Over a 64-year span, Churchill published over 40 books, many multi-volume definitive accounts of historical events to which he was a witness and participant. All are beautifully written and as accessible and relevant today as when first published.

During his fifty-year political career, Churchill served twice as Prime Minister in addition to other prominent positions-including President of the Board of Trade, First Lord of the Admiralty, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Home Secretary. In the 1930s, Churchill was one of the first to recognize the danger of the rising Nazi power in Germany and to campaign for rearmament in Britain. His leadership and inspired broadcasts and speeches during World War II helped strengthen British resistance to Adolf Hitler-and played an important part in the Allies' eventual triumph.

One of the most inspiring wartime leaders of modern history, Churchill was also an orator, a historian, a journalist, and an artist. All of these aspects of Churchill are fully represented in this collection of his works.

ABOUT THE SERIES

Over two decades in the making, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples provides an in-depth look at how history was affected by Britain, America, and English-speaking nations throughout the world-from the time of Julius Caesar's invasion to the Boer War of 1902.

Midway through the writing of this work, Churchill was called back to government service-ultimately taking the role of Prime Minister during World War II. Once he finally published the work, in the 1950's, it became a best-seller-receiving excellent reviews not only from the public, but also from professional scholars and academics. It is a work of narrative history that has stood-and will continue to stand-the test of time.
