Triumph and Tragedy
Triumph and Tragedy
By Winston S. Churchill
Houghton, 1953, 800 pp

Finis coronat opus. With this volume Sir Winston concludes his great memoir-history on the theme "How the great democracies triumphed, and so were able to resume the follies which had so nearly cost them their life." Literarily perhaps less impressive than some of the preceding volumes, it covers the final and fateful steps from D-Day to the end of the war in Europe, steps which not only defeated Germany but set the stage for the Cold War.
