Closing the Ring

By Winston S. Churchill

Houghton, 1951, 749 pp.

In this fifth volume of his great memoirs Mr. Churchill covers the year from June 1943 to June 1944--the 12 months that witnessed the fall of Mussolini, the invasion of Sicily and Italy, the Teheran Conference and the launching of Overlord. Of particular interest are the discussion of the issues dividing him and President Roosevelt and the explanation of his views on a Balkan landing.
