A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900Book - 2008
A sequel to Sir Winston Churchill's four-part History of the English-Speaking Peoples documents events from the past century, recounting the rise of the United States and other nations while outlining their struggles against numerous challengers. By the author of Waterloo. Reprint.
A magisterial history inspired by Winston Churchill's famous opus, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900 is an engrossing account of the twentieth century, with a unique perspective on our turbulent times. In 1900, where Churchill ended the fourth volume of his History of the English-Speaking Peoples, the United States had not yet emerged onto the world scene as a great power. Yet the coming century was to belong to the English-speaking peoples, who successively and successfully fought the Kaiser's Germany, Axis aggression and Soviet Communism, and who are now struggling against Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. Andrew Roberts's History proves especially invaluable as the United States today looks to other parts of the English-speaking world as its best, closest and most dependable allies.
