Closing the Ring de Winston S. Churchill (1948)
No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
Spanning a relatively short period of the Second World War (July 1943 - June 1944), it obviously also covers all the preparations for 'Overlord' (but not the actual invasion itself).
Churchill presents the reader (once again) with a global view of the war and how it was 'managed' by the Great Powers (GB, US, USSR) during this period. The initially rather uneasy alliance with Russia improves somewhat and of course the war is turning around.
Nazi Germany losing everything that was gained in the USSR, Italy surrendering and fighting with the Allies (leaving the Axis broken), Japan stalled and driven back.
Full with details and information it is a gripping read, as were the previous volumes. Now I am getting onto the last of these six books. I will let you know, what I think about it, when I am done.

The Allies take the fight to the enemy in this vivid historical account by the British prime minister and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature. In this fifth volume of his magnificent history of World War II, Winston Churchill recounts the story of the Allied forces going on the offensive. Mussolini falls, Hitler is besieged on three sides, and the Japanese find it near impossible to maintain a grip on the territories they had recently overtaken. Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt work toward keeping their uneasy partnership moving in concert, and much of this volume is dedicated to describing the intricate negotiations that went on to sustain this partnership toward one single goal. This six-volume account of the struggle between the Allied Powers in Europe against Germany and the Axis during World War II, told from the unique viewpoint of a British prime minister, it is also the story of one nation's heroic role in the fight against tyranny, enriched with fascinating primary sources. We are presented with not only Churchill's retrospective analysis of the war, but also memos, letters, orders, speeches, and telegrams, day-by-day accounts of reactions as the drama intensifies. Throughout these volumes, we listen as strategies and counterstrategies unfold in response to Hitler's conquest of Europe, planned invasion of England, and assault on Russia, in a mesmerizing account of the crucial decisions made as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
