"In this absorbing volume, skillfully culled by his grandson from Winston Churchill’s vast literary output, the greatest Englishman of the twentieth century paints with surpassing elegance his portrait of American history and the American character. This is a good book to read–and a book to savor."
–Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
"This excellent volume gives the gist of all Winston Churchill’s writings and observations about American history. It is a wonderful read for Americans, and tells them a great deal about their country which many of them do not know and ought to know."
–Paul Johnson, author of A History of the American People
