Excellent Gift for WWII collectors, writers
By History Buff
from Martinez, CA
I bought this for my husband who is very interested in WWII history, especially the dynamics between the leaders: Churchill, Hitler, Roosevelt. This book is a rare inside glimpse into statesmanship and crafting speeches and transports one back to the time and place. The book is beautifully bound and absolutely captivating. The price is a bargain, given the historical significance.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Makes a great gift for a history buff
from Columbus, OH
To be able to see the actual notes that Churchill made on the text was very interesting--and to then listen to the recording while reading the notes made it extra special.
from Aurora, NY
I recently purchased "The Making of the Finest Hour" as a Christmas gift for my father. He enjoys historical books and this was different than anything else we had ever bought him. My father enjoyed it very much. He read the book and played the CD within days of receiving it. He told me it was definitely a great gift.
A Churchill's fan delight
from Chicago, IL
My husband is a huge Churchill fan. I ordered this book, plus two old books from London. I can't wait to give him this one, THE MAKING OF THE FINEST HOUR, because it shows Churchill's thought process when writing the speech. HIstory at your fingertips!

The Making of the Finest Hour
from Silver Spring, MD
This is not a book you sit and read as a novel. It is a study item to be tackled piece by piece, morsel by morsel. It's a study of style and function; a study of the author and his vibes. A study of history.
Churchill buff's dream!
from Sugar Land, TX
This book and CD provides a wonderful insight into how this great man thought and worked.I've listend to, and read it, several times, and have thoroughly enjoyed it.Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
from Oklahoma City, OK
I gave this to my father in law on his 80th birthday. He absolutely loved it - and that is saying a lot, as it is not always easy to impress him. He told me he often likes to quote Churchill, and realized from reading this book that he had to make a few corrections! He loves having the "real deal." Keep these wonderful books coming.
