Description

From the Allied landings in Normandy in June 1944 the Second World War had only fourteen months to run. This final volume of the account covers events right up to the unconditional surrender of Japan.

Churchill's six-volume history of World War II - the definitive work, remarkable both for its sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, universally acknowledged as a magnificent historical reconstruction and an enduring work of literature.

Praise For Triumph and Tragedy

"Churchill is artist enough to realize that these huge final chords must be simple. He gives us a magnificently muted close." The New Yorker
