Краткое описание

The World Crisis: 1911–1918.

Serving as First Lord of the Admiralty until the Gallipoli disaster, then as front line commander of the 6th Battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers, and finally as Minister of Munitions, Winston Churchill stood at the center of Britain's international affairs leading up to the Great War, and its conduct of the war itself. In this classic account, originally published in 1931, he charts how the tides of despair and triumph flowed and ebbed as the political and military leaders of the time navigated the dangerous currents of world conflict. Churchill vividly recounts the major campaigns that shaped the war: the furious attacks of the Marne, the naval maneuvers off Jutland, Verdun's "soul-stirring frenzy," and the surprising victory of Chemins des Dames. He re-creates the dawn of modern warfare—the buzz of warplanes overhead, thunderous artillery, and the threat of chemical warfare. In Churchill's inimitable voice we hear how "the war to end all wars" instead gave birth to every war that would follow; this is great history, told by a man who both practiced it and grasped its meaning."The World Crisis is at once an outstandingly readable history of the First World War—the seminal drama of modern times—and an eyewitness account, especially of its opening years. Whether as a statesman or an author, Churchill was a giant; and The World Crisis towers over most other books about the Great War."—David Fromkin"Winston Churchill's personality suffuses The World Crisis, not only in its arguments but also in its masterful prose. The book, however, aspires to be even more than that—a general history of the war that shaped the 20th century as well as the attitudes of one of the century's most powerful personalities."—Hew Strachan
