Beschreibung:

This is the British first edition, first printing of the first volume of the Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. This volume covers the first four years Churchill spent as First Lord of the Admiralty, as well as the beginning of the war. Of The World Crisis, Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. Unfortunately, the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear, the contents prone to spotting and toning. This is a very good overall copy of the first volume, suitable for populating a British first edition set. The blue cloth binding retains superior shelf presentation, with a nicely rounded spine and bright spine gilt, and the binding remains square with sharp corners. We note minor scuffing to the lower front cover, light wear to extremities and the lower rear hinge, and just a hint of outward warp to the front cover fore edge. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is noted to the page edges and prelims, only occasionally intruding into the blank inner margins of the balance of the text. The errata slip at page 1 confirms second state of the first printing. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(I).b, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Buchbeschreibung Bloomsbury Academic/Bloomsbury Publishing, 2015. Softcover. Zustand: New. First edition. The World Crisis is considered by many to be Winston S. Churchill`s literary masterpiece. Published across five volumes between 1923 and 1931, Churchill here tells the story of The Great War, from its origins to the long shadow it cast on the following decades. At once a history and a first-hand account of Churchill`s own involvement in the war, The World Crisis remains a compelling account of the conflict and its importance. Volume I covers the origins and earliest days of the war from 1911-1914, as well as the longer history of the collapse of the Great Power system from the Franco Prussian war onwards. Churchill here explores the international tensions over the Balkan states that triggered the conflict as well as the arms race between the British and German navies. Printed Pages: 456.
