This is a superior copy of the U.S. first edition, only printing of the fourth volume of Winston Churchill's war speeches. Onwards to Victory contains speeches from 1943. In this volume the oratory takes a more positive tone as Churchill and the Allies begin to anticipate victory. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of note - member of Parliament for more than half a century, soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner. But Churchill's preeminence as a historical figure owes most to his indispensable leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes in both British and U.S. editions. The U.S. first editions were generally published in smaller numbers and are considerably more scarce today than their British counterparts. This U.S. first edition, only printing is scarce thus, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is immaculate, square, and tight, with bright red color, vivid gilt, and sharp corners. The contents are likewise exceptionally bright with no previous ownership marks. Modest spotting to the top edge and a trace of spotting to the fore edge are the only flaws noted. The dust jacket is complete and unclipped, retaining the original $3.50 front flap price. Spine presentation is excellent, with an exceptional, entirely unfaded red spine title panel and only light wear to the spine ends. The illustrated front panel is likewise beautifully bright, with only a hint of wear to extremities and a short closed tear at the bottom edge. We note light soiling to the otherwise bright rear panel. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
