“Never give in!” Winston Churchill is famous for admonishing: “This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never.” What most people don't know is that when he said this he was addressing not a nation facing the threat of invasion, but a roomful of schoolboys at his old school. A powerful, persuasive speaker and notorious wit, Churchill is one of the twentieth century's most oft-quoted leaders—and one frequently misquoted or quoted out of context. Yet his actual remarks were often much wiser and wittier than reported. Churchill By Himself is the first exhaustive, attributed, and annotated collection of Churchill sayings. Edited by a longtime Churchill scholar and authorized by the Churchill estate, the quotations provide the first wholly accurate record of the esteemed statesman's words.

This first-ever comprehensive and accurate collection of quotations by the notoriously eloquent and witty leader is a great gift and enduring reference guide for history buffs and toastmasters.

& Taylor

The spirit, drive, motivations, and goals of this impressive leader are presented through this accurate collection of his most notable statements, speeches, and quotations, including "Never give in!"
