In the fourth and final volume of his history of the English-speaking peoples, Sir Winston S. Churchill chronicles the birth of the modern era: from the industrial revolution and the high Victorian era of Gladstone and Disraeli, to the American Civil War and the emergence of the United States as a world power as the 20th Century dawned.
Sir Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on two occasions, from 1940-1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Celebrated as one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century, he was also a gifted orator, statesman and historian. The author of more than 40 books, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 and in 1963 was made an honorary citizen of the United States.
