Spanning four volumes and many centuries of history, from Caesar's invasion of Britain to the start of World War I, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples.

Directions were clear, tendentious rendition and interpretation prevented and each committee then had to submit their section to the next committee for review. In 3 years-time the work was finished when the supervisory committee then reviewed the final draft version — 12 persons on this committee completed the task within 9 months-time.

This is truly King James I lasting legacy — a thorough, complete, and unbiased edition in English of the Holy Scriptures.

Volume III: At this juncture it has become clear that the mixture of Church and State was a mixture that everyone knew at the time was lethal; however, the anger of Parliament attempting to create the crown as a figure head is all too apparent. When the South Sea Company fails the previous greed of Members of the House of Commons and of their peers are among the many ruined; greed and fear then as now knows no boundaries of moral compass directions.

Others committed suicide, some were sought by pitch fork and the Post-Master General took poison. In Volume III we enter into the unrest to the 13 Colonies; unrest that had previously lay within embers smoldering until site had been placed to the stove. The Revolution of and later a war with Spain had forced a different focus upon Britain an ocean away. All the while, it was apparent that Colonists in America were learning how to thrive in a vast untamed wilderness with Native Americans or First Nation civilizations.

It is a rather fascinating read to see the interpretations of Sir WSC.

A History of the English Speaking Peoples, 4 Vols

He gives credit where it is due of course; however, he introduces us to the concerns of the Parliament and King George III. Moving from the American Revolution the entrance of the French Revolution is no less important. The impact of the French Revolution on the European Continent was in reflection for the English the same sort of situation with their own Revolution of The differences between the two essentially were the foundations of reason and the structure within the political bodies which remained for the citizens of each nation.

For the likes of Robespierre there is no comparison to the English version of Cromwell. Specifically, Burke states that the convulsion in France was not a dignified, orderly change, carried out with due regard for tradition, like the English Revolution of It was however a tail wind from the recent American Revolution — implemented much differently as well.

For their part, the Cossacks themselves and the Tsar forget the methodology employed that helped to kick Napoleon out of Moscow and so there are many sad stories that ensue — only the French seem to have updated their weaponry in the between years of war and Army in these years that followed Waterloo. Enter Queen Victoria, a woman one can tell by the words of Sir WSC that are held in high respect and regard for the Queen that did so much for her Empire.

Sir WSC breaks for a spell — but maintains a link to the History of English Speaking Peoples by providing occasional references to what other matters are going on globally at the time. This matter gets resolved peacefully and the 49th Parallel is assured — America wanted the 54th. The establishment of British Columbia is the Province connected by railway that assists this international agreement.

Churchill then goes on to describe the South African immigration and frontier, and from here he pays respectful history of fact to the foundation of Australia, New Zealand, and the island state of Tasmania. At this point reading through this fascinating history — we move back to the American frontier. He notices that the rock formations of where gold is mined and discovered is similar to the formations in Australia.

Ironically, and with great knowledge — the man returns to Australia with this knowledge and discovers gold in the State of Western Australia in From his very experienced position at this stage in life to which he writes of the American Civil War — he ties in historical events in a very balanced fashion; incorporating history of John Quincy Adams, the Monroe Doctrine, the burning embers of North vs.

South or West and South vs. This was a very real prospect for the time and one that Sir WSC is neutral in his very British form of writing. The British and European view of our internal hostility for the time during the reign of Queen Victoria was in fact refreshing and unbiased.

The Franco-Prussian War takes center stage — what was the missing link in the Prussian success was the quiet advancements of Krupp Armaments — made during a time where Prussian and German interests were rather scant from the scene. This has a profound effect in the later hatred of the First World War where the Economic Consequences of the Peace were forever entwined with what had occurred in This said, it was later that the Treaty of Stefano would prevent war in Europe for some 36 years; however, this too led the path down the road to the Great War.

What entails from within are quiet developments of alliances following this treaty; it was also the result of the same. They both had their good points; but, Disraeli was the more preferred between the two when it came to Queen Victoria. American schools can take a note from the history as provided as in depth and as knowledgeable as he was on our internal affairs. Moving from American Reconstruction — we read of the Boer War; the first event that brought Churchill to the forefront of activity — it is this same chapter and final chapter to which we learn of the love the United Kingdom had for her majestic Queen Victoria — an era concluded with her death and as Sir WSC is compiling these words in the late s he is clearly attempting to write for future generations the era to which he became a man and to which the British Empire had struggled to gain throughout all of her existence.

They are now to become Allies in terrible but victorious wars. And that is not the end. Another phase looms before us, in which alliance will once more be tested and in which it formidable virtues may be to preserve the Peace and Freedom. The future is unknowable, but the past should give us hope. Nor should we seek to define precisely the exact terms of ultimate union. View all 6 comments.

Sep 08, Lu Wang rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I have rarely seen a book of history so deeply personal and analytical at the same time. By reading this 4-volume book, one gets a glimpse of Winston Churchill's intricate thinking pattern. As one of craftiest politicians of the 20th Century, he led a deeply pacifist British public to rise up against the Nazi's; he predicted America's downfall in Vietnam; he also infamously forced America into WWI at the cost of more than one thousand civilian lives aboard RMS Lusitania.

His mastery shines throug I have rarely seen a book of history so deeply personal and analytical at the same time. His mastery shines through in this book. He eloquently defended every British action from Burgundy to India, as if every aggression was Britain's manifest destiny. Yet, a profound perspective of history permeates this book. This book is a history of heroes, English-speaking heroes who created the Magna Carta, those who fought and triumphed the Boer War, and those who built the Second Empire at the heel of English defeat in the First.

Neither did he hesitate to defend the Victorian decadence of Britain - even the beginning of the end can be polished to shine! After reading this book, you can't help but wonder what kind of people deserve such a leader- the kind of leader who is relentlessly pragmatic, ruthlessly indifferent to human conditions and yet charismatic enough to save an empire from the cusp of an apocalyptic destruction.

Perhaps one of my all time favorite books. I have reread this several times. If you are a lover of history this is it. If not, you will probably be bored to death. Either way a win-win for the rest of us! Jul 26, Aaron Crofut rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely loved this series.

Churchill has a written voice unmatched in the English language, and the reader will struggle less with finishing the plus pages than he will in putting the book down. I would absolutely recommend this for those homeschooling middle school aged children, as it provides a delightful overview o "It is all true, or it ought to be; and more and better besides. I would absolutely recommend this for those homeschooling middle school aged children, as it provides a delightful overview of English and American history up until the start of the 20th Century, with a focus on the rise, evolution, and importance of English institutions.

I would also recommend it for adults whose historical gap includes English history, the foundation of American political and social thought.

Feb 28, Hannah rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oh my word, if I could give this series 6 stars I would. It's as good as they come. Outstanding material. Covers British and American history quite well.

Churchill's integrity as a historian is made evident in every book in the series, and he's not lacking in a sense of humor or a sense of scene. He keeps his own opinions on the characters to himself--for the most part--but occasionally flashes out in glorious commentary.

His remarks on Catherine Howard are interesting--he so rarely comments on Oh my word, if I could give this series 6 stars I would.

His remarks on Catherine Howard are interesting--he so rarely comments on the appearance of the ladies: P--and I found his insights into the character of Charles II very satisfying. Dec 10, Alexander Kerensky rated it really liked it. It is useful to remember that books tell you as much about their author as they do about their subject; indeed, that's sometimes the point of reading them.

And these four were penned by none other than Winston S. Churchill -- soldier, painter, politician, historian, war leader, and often voted the greatest Briton -- or even Anglo -- of the entire second millennium. Churchill wrote prolifically in his life, whether article It is useful to remember that books tell you as much about their author as they do about their subject; indeed, that's sometimes the point of reading them. Churchill wrote prolifically in his life, whether articles, speeches, novels or histories, and often published expansive multi-volume goliaths.

He impressed his personality firmly into everything he did, so it might be prudent to ask if there's anything we can learn about the Grand Old Man from his four-volume, twelve-book, chapter account of the entirety of Anglo history.

Firstly, he's a whig historian. For Churchill The History of the English-Speaking Peoples is a story of unstoppable progress towards a set destiny of world hegemony and endless greatness. He makes much of habeus corpus , of the spreading out of enlightened British folk across the globe, he recites all of the various constitutional debates that led to English Common Law, and he lovingly charts the growth of Parliament as an institution.

It is very triumphalist, and that will bring him censure from more modern historians who aren't so keen on shouting about the British war record and the fact we haven't had a revolution since and that Anglos have controlled the world since at least I think they're too pessimistic. It's certainly true that not everything the British have done is worthy of praise, and making excuses for some of the Empire's handiwork is downright shameful to attempt, but I don't think it can be seriously denied that the world is a better place for it, in the end, and the new-founded countries Britain left behind are certainly a proud legacy.

Churchill, refreshingly, knows this.

A History Of The English Speaking Peoples - in 4 volumes

On the other hand, I admit some of the things he wrote did make my modern eyes wince. The warning signs were there from the very second chapter, the account of the Bouadicea rebellion: This is probably the most horrible episode which our Island has known. We see the crude and corrupt beginnings of a higher civilisation blotted out by the ferocious uprisings of the native tribes. Still, it is the primary right of men to die and kill for the land they live in, and to punish with exceptional severity all members of their own race who have warmed their hands at the invaders' hearth.

Well, that's nice. It really says it all, doesn't it? The stupid British natives were too bloodthirsty and resisted the loving embrace of the civilised empire come to invade them, but it's OK because everyone has the right to butcher race traitors. Of the Tasmanian Genocide off Australia he mentions only that the native tribes met a "tragic" end and "were extinct by the beginning of the twentieth century".

He can't quite bring himself to say they were exterminated by the British in the only successful genocide in history. In fact, of the entire period of colonialism he remarks: The nineteenth century was a period of purposeful, progressive, enlightened, tolerant civilisation.

The stir in the world arising from the French Revolution, added to the Industrial Revolution unleashed by the steam-engine and many key-inventions, led inexorably to the democratic age. At the same time the new British Empire or Commonwealth of Nations was based upon government by consent, and the voluntary association of autonomous states under the Crown. Suffice to say, the fourth volume in particular is stuffed full of some -- how can I put it?

As a final example, when discussing early trade unionism in America Churchill notes that the organisations attracted "a host of fanatics ranging from suffragists to single-taxers". But that does not make him an unworthy guide through history. In fact, I assert some of the most appealing parts of the narrative are Winston's evaluations of the different characters and events, which he can be relied upon to deliver as they exit the scene. All of these are entertaining and some are downright enlightening.

He points out that Charles I, for instance, had genuine qualities as a general, considering he ruled a country that had known seventy years of peace, while Oliver Cromwell is censured because he was the only military dictator England has ever known, ruling with no popular consent by force alone, and parallels are drawn with the twentieth century that I wouldn't have thought of myself. Burr is nothing more than an "evil genius". He has implied sympathy for the Confederacy in the U.

Civil War, but he does a decent enough job justifying it and clearly isn't a fan of slavery. He also gives a much-needed new perspective on the Indian Mutiny: I was genuinely interested to see how he would take the U. Constitution, but somehow he manages to convincingly portray it as a restatement of British Common Law principles: At first sight this authoritative document presents a sharp contrast with the store of traditions and precedents that make up the unwritten Constitution of Britain.

Yet behind it lay no revolutionary theory. It was based not upon the challenging writings of the French philosophers which were soon to set Europe ablaze, but on Old English doctrine, freshly formulated to meet an urgent American need.

The Constitution was a reaffirmation of faith in the principles painfully evolved over the centuries by the English-speaking peoples. It enshrined long-standing English ideas of justice and liberty, henceforth to be regarded on the other side of the Atlantic as basically American.

The second thing we learn is that Churchill really likes kings, queens, prime ministers, presidents and wars. He writes about little else. When these books came out Clement Attlee quipped that a better name for them would be Things in History that Interested Me , and he's probably right.

Whether or not this represents a comprehensive history probably depends on how one defines history. If one seeks an account of British government, of monarchs, of conflicts, of strife in the corridors of power, of relations with other countries, this might be the next Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. If one wants to know how your average peasant was doing, it's worthless. The Industrial Revolution is given a paltry few pages, and the development of society prior to that is so overlooked that I didn't even realise muskets had been invented until Marlborough's troops are described as "red".

Great British culture fares little better. John Locke is mentioned only in connection to the Earl Of Shaftesbury, a prominent politician of the time, while Thomas Paine is merely an "extremist" who helped provoke the American War of Independence. He dotes lengthily on Parliament, but that's about it.

Instead we have pages and pages and pages and pages and pages of troop movements, campaigning, battles, retreats, marches, treaties, etc. The war leader considers these things to be more important. I find that very telling of Churchill's personality.

How can one define what is "worthy" of being written up as history, really? In the end it's subjective. I forget his name, but there was one Marxist historian who pointed out that millions of people crossed the Rubicon; we just remember Caesar doing it for arbitrary reasons.

The historian must choose which facts to fill his history with, and Churchill has chosen battles and monarchs. Could one have expected much else? He was, after all, one of those "great men" we hear so much about.

A war journalist who wrote histories of the River and Boer Wars, participant in the great cavalry charge at Omdurman, PoW and escapee in South Africa, returning later as liberator, disastrous First Lord of the Admiralty who redeemed himself by enlisting to fight in the trenches, ex-chancellor who made the most spectacular comeback, and finally the spirit of the nation in its -- and his -- finest hour.

Rumour has it that when he was told he had won the Nobel Prize, his face lit up and he rose to his feet, only to fall back in disappointment when he realised it was for Literature. He fought in three wars and was at the political forefront of the two greatest. With this in mind, I don't think he can be blamed for the charge of historical elitism.

He has earned the right to praise great people. Finally, we learn about Churchill's thoughts of the future. Lofty goal. Churchill always saw a certain connection between Anglos not to be found elsewhere. Europe was important to him, but only in the way neighbours are important, and also as a security concern.

The English-speakers around the world were like family. It's certainly true that Britain has never really been a European country: So what are we? Whether or not Churchill's boundless love of the Commonwealth is positively reciprocated is only partly relevant: I suspect the bond is deep enough for unity in the face of whatever awful martial challenge awaits next, even if time has left it in need of a polish. It will be remembered before the end.

Reading the final sentences, I think Churchill knows this too: Here is set out a long story of the English-Speaking Peoples. Another phase looms before us, in which the alliance will once more be tested and in which its formidable virtues may be to preserve Peace and Freedom. Nor should we now seek to define precisely the exact terms of the ultimate union. Churchill's conclusions on everything from the Magna Carta to the accomplishments of reigns of the first English kings are often quite insightful.

In other cases - ie: This work clearly evidences Churchill's interest in military history. I found his reputation as having spun a "great men of history" narrative is partially deserved.

I say "partially" because Churchill also strikes me as incredibly cognizant of political and social changes driven by more mundane organizational and administrative efforts of government over the years. The latter certainly makes for a less sexy historical narrative, but Churchill covers it convincingly and with energy.

Take his coverage of Edward I as a case in point. While sparing few grisly details of the rule of "The Hammer of the Scots," aka the bad guy from Braveheart , Churchill also paints a picture of a dedicated administrator who set up a fair local judiciaries to limit baronial oppression and organized Parliament to make it a legitimate legislative body. Even if the whole work is a bit much, I would recommend the Prologue - which covers the whole arc from Roman Britain to the rise of America as a world power in the 20th century, or Volumes of the "history" series - to anyone and everyone willing to go out and pick it up.

Winston Churchill knew how to make some rousing prose in his day. Dec 23, Sean rated it it was amazing.

This is one of the greatest histories ever written, on part with Gibbon and Macaulay. Winston Churchill's command of English history is unparalleled and his style of writing is clear and accessible. This history is directed at the general public so if you are looking for a serious academic treatment of English history, Churchill's work is not for you.

However, it is a useful read in case you wanted to know more about the names, places, and dates of English history. Churchill is particularly stro This is one of the greatest histories ever written, on part with Gibbon and Macaulay. Churchill is particularly strong in his treatment of the Tudors, the English Civil War, and the rise of the British Empire. Recommended for one and all. As a history, it is merely okay.

Far too much emphasis is placed on political and military history; social and cultural history is barely mentioned. However, when read as Churchill's take on how the two great democratic powers of the last years arose and evolved from a Roman backwater, it's fascinating.

What is Kobo Super Points?

Apr 23, H. I am reading history lately. This is so I can better foresee if my country is heading towards political dissolution. That's all I'll say about my motivations. The book succeeds due to Churchill's strong narrative, accessible style and intense focus on political development. This is not a new book, of course.

Originally written in the mids, after Churchill's time in politics, his four volumes represented a well-researched, comprehensive review of history from pre-Christian Roman times t I am reading history lately.

Originally written in the mids, after Churchill's time in politics, his four volumes represented a well-researched, comprehensive review of history from pre-Christian Roman times to the eve of the First World War. This version is a single-volume abridgment by Christopher Lee, originally released in Given this history was written by a man who was a Anlgo chauvinist and full-throttle behind Britain's ambition on the world stage, the tale stops short of any self-criticism regarding Britain's colonial ambitions.

Thus, this book's narrative needs to be taken in context with other works. For instance, there is no reflection on the rightness of what Great Britain's leaders did to grasp control in South Africa and India, for instance.

Churchill almost never reflects upon whether exercises of blatant military or political power were 'right'. He does, of course, discuss the political imperatives driving the decisions of the men mostly and women who controlled the state at the time. That is his major contribution. I'm a long-time Anglophile and have read many accounts covering periods of British history.

But given how confusing and convoluted was the genesis of Modern Britain from the small kingdoms of rude warriors to a democratic world power, I never had a clear vision of how Britain got from point A to point Z. Churchill gives us that.

His mastery of political evolution finally clarifies how a country lurched from 'off with their heads! He puts the great personalities of British politics in context, from their rise, struggle, mastery and fall. I began this in Six years later I have finished it, not because I abandoned it but because I used it as a primer.

I had very little knowledge of British history when I started this book and I realized that it couldn't give me everything I wanted to know. To that end, I read sections then supplemented with other books about the same period. This is why it took so long to finish. I think this book is an amazing piece of writing and research by a very busy man. It is written in the style of t I began this in It is written in the style of the proud British man who also happens to have his interests in war and politics, so cultural history is a minimum.

For example, he spends a few paragraphs, interspersed, on the reign of Queen Victoria, who at the time of his writing this book, was the longest reigning monarch of Britain.

I feel like this was such a shame, but perhaps it is because it's the abridged version. Instead, during this period he focused on the various colonial wars and disputes and Parliament.

It is a very erudite look at Parliament, for sure, and if that is your interest in British politics, then this book is for you.

For me, I am very glad I read it and began a journey through British history that has massively improved my historical thinking. Jul 03, Jeff Stilwell rated it it was amazing. It may sound odd to hear it, but I've reread the first volume of this excellent four-volume series so many times that I can almost quote sections from memory. What is his trick of making medieval history even more enthralling than, say, Arthurian legends, or the stories of the Merovingians? Churchill's writing carries the dictum: Interestingly, his magic seems rooted more in the past than in the near present.

So while I It may sound odd to hear it, but I've reread the first volume of this excellent four-volume series so many times that I can almost quote sections from memory. So while I have read and reread and reread all four volumes of this series, I note a declining power or punch to his story-telling from first to the fourth. Nevertheless, the series is a wonderfully insightful read into power and politics and the personalities that drive both.

In general very informative. Feel free to share your thoughts on your impressions of this wonderful History. Volume I: As we see the beginning of the British Nation with the foundation of Julius Caesar in the year 55 BC in the Roman Calendar we begin the journey of the same great nation that had at best auspicious beginnings.

Sir WSC captures the events in prose as none other could in my opinion. This clearly comes across in Volume I. His accounting of Battle of Hastings in was a wonderful display of poetic respect. This begins an awakening of working class peoples to see the value to what they brought and continue to bring in the modern age to a different sort of degree. Joan of Arc gets more than an honorable prose in a chapter dedicated to her, King Henry VI was merely lucky to have the strength of his Queen.

Volume II: In the first chapter as one would hope we read of the fact in point that though Britain was then-as-is-now an island unto herself that the world around her was not laying idle nor still. The consequence of the monasteries is of course one that provides revenue for a Kingdom suffering from not enough money. Within this layer would be the future seeds in my opinion of the confusion that modern day people have with genealogical studies of their ancestors. There are many topics in this Volume II that lays the groundwork for further reading.

Directions were clear, tendentious rendition and interpretation prevented and each committee then had to submit their section to the next committee for review.

Volume III: At this juncture it has become clear that the mixture of Church and State was a mixture that everyone knew at the time was lethal; however, the anger of Parliament attempting to create the crown as a figure head is all too apparent. When the South Sea Company fails the previous greed of Members of the House of Commons and of their peers are among the many ruined; greed and fear then as now knows no boundaries of moral compass directions. Others committed suicide, some were sought by pitch fork and the Post-Master General took poison.

In Volume III we enter into the unrest to the 13 Colonies; unrest that had previously lay within embers smoldering until site had been placed to the stove. The Revolution of and later a war with Spain had forced a different focus upon Britain an ocean away. All the while, it was apparent that Colonists in America were learning how to thrive in a vast untamed wilderness with Native Americans or First Nation civilizations.
