Winston Churchill 1874 1965 from the Author: Peter Alter. English summary: Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) is considered to be the most important Englishman of all times and the greatest statesman of the 20th century. Through his unyielding resistance facing menace and military aggression Hitler failed. One of the "Big Three" next to Roosevelt and Stalin, Churchill played a major role in defeating Nazi Germany and in the reorganisation of Europe after the destruction of the second world war. The political and economic unification of Europe received vital impulse from him. The author follows the trail of Churchill's life and lays out an impression of a exceptional personality - the politician, visionary statesman, the successful author and free time painter. German description: Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) gilt als der bedeutendste Englander aller Zeiten, als der grosste Staatsmann des 20. Jahrhunderts. An seinem entschlossenen Widerstand und seiner Unbeugsamkeit gegenuber Drohungen und militarischer Aggression scheiterte der Diktator Hitler. Als einer der "Grossen Drei" neben Roosevelt und Stalin hatte er massgeblichen Anteil an der Niederwerfung des nationalsozialistischen Deutschland und der Neuordnung Europas nach den Zerstorungen des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Die politische und wirtschaftliche Einigung Europas erfuhr durch ihn entscheidende Anstosse. Der Autor zeichnet Churchills Lebensweg nach und gibt einen Eindruck von einer ausserordentlichen Personlichkeit - dem Politiker, dem visionaren Staatsmann, dem erfolgreichen Schriftsteller und Hobbymaler.

Winston Churchill from the Author: Thomas Kielinger. Als Winston Churchill 25 Jahre alt war, hatte er Kriege auf drei Kontinenten erlebt, fünf Bücher geschrieben und einen Sitz im britischen Unterhaus gewonnen. Als er 60 war, galt er politisch als gescheiterter Mann. Doch dann kam mit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg Churchills größte Stunde. Als Premierminister leistete er den entscheidenden Widerstand gegen Hitler-Deutschland und führte sein Land bis zum siegreichen Kriegsende. ”Wir sind doch alle Würmer. Aber ich glaube, ich bin ein Glühwurm“, hat Winston Churchill (1874–1965) in jungen Jahren einmal verkündet. Kaum einer besaß so reiche Talente, um solchen Ehrgeiz zu befriedigen. Churchill kämpfte als Soldat in Englands Kolonialkriegen, wurde als Kriegskorrespondent und Kriegsabenteurer berühmt, bekleidete im Laufe seines Lebens fast jeden Ministerposten seines Landes und wurde zwei Mal Premierminister. Daneben war er ein anerkannter Maler, ein begeisternder Redner und ein begnadeter Schriftsteller – der einzige Staatsmann, der je den Nobelpreis für Literatur erhielt. Dabei konnte er gleichermaßen inspirieren wie irritieren: als radikaler Sozialreformer und als Imperialist alter Schule, als entschlossener Krieger und als Vordenker einer friedlichen Welt nach den Weltkriegen. Thomas Kielinger erzählt das fesselnde Leben dieser Jahrhundertgestalt mit kritischer Bewunderung und narrativem Glanz.

His faith was rewarded when he became Prime Minister of Britain at the height of WWII. Working tirelessly, his tremendous ability to inspire the nation during such times of horror has become legendary. Above all, he will always be remembered as the man who led the allied forces to victory, freeing Europe from the tyranny of Nazism.

Never Give In from the Author: Sir Winston S. Churchill. A great statesmen, a masterful historian whose writings won him the Nobel Prize for literature and a war-time leader with few peers, Sir Winston Churchill is remembered perhaps most clearly today for the sheer power of his oratory: the speeches that rallied a nation in its darkest hour and steeled that nation for victory against the might of the Fascist powers. Never Give In! celebrates this oratory by gathering together Churchill's most powerful speeches from throughout his public career. Carefully selected by his grandson, this collection includes all his best known speeches - from his great war-time broadcasts to the "Iron Curtain" speech that heralded the start of the Cold War - and many lesser known but inspirational pieces. In a single volume Never Give In! provides a powerful testimony to one of the great public figures of the 20th century.
