THE GREAT REPUBLIC is Sir Winston Churchill's personal vision of American history, from the arrival of the first European settlers to the dawn of the Cold War, edited by his grandson, the historian and journalist Winston S. Churchill. A magnificent re-telling of the American story, the volume testifies to Churchill's huge skills as a historian and his deep warmth of feeling for America - the 'Great Republic', as he called it - and its people. THE GREAT REPUBLIC lays out America's history, character and destiny with the brilliance that could only come from an author with Churchill's gifts as a narrative historian and experience as a national leader and strategist.
Sir Winston Churchill led Britain through the Second World War as Prime Minister. He was the author of 42 books, including the four-volume History of the English Speaking Peoples.
