As first lord of the admiralty and minister for war and air, Churchill stood resolute at the center of international affairs. In this classic account, he dramatically details how the tides of despair and triumph flowed and ebbed as the political and military leaders of the time navigated the dangerous currents of world conflict. Churchill vividly recounts the major campaigns that shaped the war: the furious attacks of the Marne, the naval maneuvers off Jutland, Verdun's "soul-stirring frenzy," and the surprising victory of Chemins des Dames. Here, too, he re-creates the dawn of modern warfare: the buzz of airplanes overhead, trench combat, artillery thunder, and the threat of chemical warfare. In Churchill's inimitable voice we hear how "the war to end all wars" instead gave birth to every war that would follow, including the current war in Iraq. Written with unprecedented flair and knowledge of the events, The World Crisis remains the single greatest history of World War I, essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the twentieth century.… (mer)

Churchill wrote these volumes while a Conservative in office, sometimes when a cabinet minister, which accounts for the rare stylistic infelicities. It is an account of WWI, and emphasizes his own activities as First Lord of the Admiralty and as munitions minister. In the latter office he was the great friend of the early tank.
To a degree it shadows his later work on the WWII memoirs was a correction of earlier faults this time round. As a man of war, he certainly saw the flaws in trying to prosecute a policy without enough power to ensure maximum effort. The WWII prime minister would much rather interfere too much than let a perceived good idea languish.
I read the unabridged four volume set. Twice. ( )

Winston Churchill was a superb writer--What more can I say? It is a one volume summary of what was originally a five volume work. This particular volume covers the years 1911-1918 of World War. Sadly, it does not include "The Aftermath," the last volume and for that reason I can only rate it at four stars. Churchill began the conflict as Lord of the Admiralty, but came under pretty stiff criticism especially after Gallipoli. Hence it is written largely to justify his own actions during the war. He is careful not to criticize Lord Kitchener who was immensely popular at the time (and who died before the end of the war). Thus there is a certain amount of obvious spin on the narration. But it's a classic now, and a very great book. I wish I had time to read the unabridged version. ( )
