Book Review - A History of the English Speaking Peoples: Volumes 1-4

A History of the English Speaking Peoples: Volumes 1-4

By: Winston Churchill

Book Reivew

This review is for all four books. I read them about 10 years ago, but I thought I would share a basic overview. Without a doubt, these books are among the classics and in the "must read" territory for those that like to study history. I suppose the fact that they are a four volume set might be intimidating for some, but I encourage you not to let that get in the way.

Naturally these books are thorough, and I still have some of their concepts that flash through my head to this day. Churchill does have the ability to weave the fabric of a situation fairly well as a good historical novelist should. I rank his ability in that area as decent. I have read those who do a better job.

I look forward to re-reading these books someday after I have ready a few other extensive comparable histories. I wonder how much of Churchill's presentation will hold up to other works.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
