The best-selling six-volume history that helped gain Churchill a Nobel Prize for literature. Published first in the U.S., the ensuing English edition contained numerous corrections and even a few additional maps. It is therefore considered more definitive, though today the American edition may be rarer. The series was simultaneously published by the Book-of-the-Month-Club, printed on the same presses as the first editions, and thus today can easily be confused with them.

Description: This is a mint First Edition copy of the superb Folio Society edition; six volumes slipcased in two individual pictorial cases containing three volumes each. The text is that of Churchill's revised version of 1949, with a new Introduction by Sir Martin Gilbert and a profusion of black & white photographs, many of them never before seen.
