The first one-volume abridgment of Churchill's six-volume history, largely the work of his research assistant, Denis Kelly, though Churchill did contribute an interesting epilogue covering the years 1945-1957. Issued in the U.S. under the title: MEMOIRS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR.

Description: This is a very good copy in an unclipped dust jacket of the First Printing of the First American edition in the green cloth First Binding issue (per Cohen). The jacket has darkened a bit with some scuffs, a short closed tear and shelfwear. The contents are fine, with a gentle rear hinge break.
