Comments: Winston Churchill’s account of World War I was first published as The World Crises (in six volumes) and completed in 1931. Biographer William Manchester references the book and notes that “…his masterpiece is The World Crises. Magnificently written, it is enhanced by the presence of the author at the highest councils of the war and in the trenches as a battalion commander.”
