Beschreibung

This important Churchill title - Churchill's last book published before the outbreak of the Second World War - includes 82 newspaper articles focused on foreign affairs written by Churchill at the end of his "wilderness years" between March 1936 and May 1939. Many of them of course contain his warnings and predictions about Nazi Germany. Step By Step was published in June 1939. Only a few short months later, on September 1st 1939, Germany would invade Poland. Churchill would be invited to join the War Cabinet, reprising his First World War role as First Lord of the Admiralty. Less than a year after publication, in May 1940, Churchill would become Prime Minister. As a measure of Churchill's prescience and ultimate vindication, upon publication, Labour leader Clement Attlee, a political opponent who would replace Churchill as Prime Minister in late July 1945, wrote to Churchill, "It must be a melancholy satisfaction to you to see how right you were." Others were even more blunt. Sir Desmond Morton, military officer, government official, and appeasement opponent, wrote to Churchill, "Many years on, historians will read this and your speeches in Arms and the Covenant. They will wonder but I doubt they will decide what devil of pride, unbelief, selfishness or sheer madness possessed the English people that they did not rise as one man" and "call on you to lead them." Here is the British first edition, first printing, a very good copy. The green cloth binding is square and tight, with bright gilt, sharp corners, and only light overall scuffing and a small, faint stain to the lower front cover. The contents are bright and clean, with only a few insignificant spots confined to the otherwise clean page edges. We note a previous owner's bookplate affixed to the front free endpaper and a previous owner's name prominently inked on the lower half of the title page.
