The third volume of these masterly memoirs of "The Second World War" covers the year 1941 and the first two weeks of 1942. In this decisive period which brought Russia and the United States into the war the narrative is somewhat denser, the prose somewhat less Churchillian. The volume contains a wealth of documentary material, part of which is relegated to an extensive appendix, and some pungent observations on the conduct of the new ally to the east.
