Winston Churchill recounts the end of WWII and its aftermath, in the conclusion of his majestic six-volume history.   In Triumph and Tragedy, British prime minister Winston Churchill provides in dramatic detail the endgame of the war and the uneasy meetings between himself, Stalin, and Truman to discuss plans for rebuilding Europe in the aftermath of devastation.   Beginning with the invasion of Normandy, the heroic landing of the Allied armies and the most remarkable amphibious operation in military history, Churchill watches as the uneasy coalition that had knit itself together begins to fray at Potsdam, foreshadowing the birth of the Cold War.   Triumph and Tragedy is part of the epic six-volume account of World War II told from the viewpoint of a man who led in the fight against tyranny, and enriched with extensive primary sources including 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.… (mer)

Much of the book concerned details of communications with Stalin and the US president. I started skipping over those portions.

It ends with Churchill’s party being voted out of office just before the defeat of Japan. ( )

Absolutely recommended to anyone with the slightest interest in the Second World War. Churchill's writing is extremely readable and the access to his own correspondence with both military and world leaders is indispensable. All six volumes are top notch. ( )
  everettroberts | Oct 20, 2023 |
Churchill describes the final phase of World War II in his usual diligent manner, sparing neither himself nor his allies - this becomes especially clear in his report about the decision to use atomic bombs in the war against Japan. At the time of writing he was still convinced of having made the correct decision together with the U.S. - one has to wonder, whether he still thought so later in his life.

The whole book, which one would think to be a story of victory, success and relief is overshadowed from the start by the failure of the victorious powers to not just win the war but establish a mutually beneficial peace.

In hindsight it is clear that Churchill's fears and worries about the world order after 1945 were well justified. Europe was to be divided by the infamous 'Iron Curtain' and the Cold War would turn former allies into bitter enemies.

The final volume in this series is an excellent read and the whole series should not be missing from your book shelves.

6. kniha v sérii Druhá světová válka.
Autorova anotace: "jak velké demokracie triumfovaly a to jim umožnilo, aby se znovu dopustily hloupostí, které je už jednou málem stály život".
Svazek začíná popisem vylodění v Normadii dne 6. června roku 1944 a pokračuje líčením drtivých úspěchů protihitlerovské aliance na všech frontách, které vedly ke kapitulaci Německa 8. května 1945 a (po svržení atomové bomby na Hirošimu a Nagasaki) Japonska 2. září 1945. Velká pozornost je v knize věnována průběhu Jaltské a Postupimské konference, na kterých se začaly projevovat rozpory mezi spojenci, jejichž důsledkem byl rozpad aliance a rozpoutání tzv. studené války a vznik železné opony (odtud slovo tragédie v názvu svazku).

"In War: Resolution, In Defeat: Defiance, In Victory: Magnanimity, In Peace: Goodwill" - Winston S. Churchill

This is the final volume of Churchill's six-volume work. The opening was for me the least interesting because it dealt with places and a period of the war that I am least familiar with so it took a lot of concentration and a few google searches for background information. Then, thanks to Churchill's outstanding writing, it became completely engrossing. He has a way of describing multiple complex events that are happening simultaneously in a straightforward manner that makes it easy to comprehend. And he includes some insightful reflections that did not often reach the news or common knowledge at the time or since. It appeared that discussions for peace by the allies took more effort and diplomacy than fighting the war did. If you find the subject interesting, this is a terrific work that I'm glad I invested the time spent reading all six volumes. ( )
