Vol. III A History of the English-Speaking Peoples
  Buttercup25 | Jan 31, 2020 |
A literate visit to the shrines of the development of the British way of governing with an emphasis on the "Glorious Revolution " of 1688. Covering the growth of the idea of "The Crown" (the will of the people as shown by their elected Representatives), as contrasted with the will of the individual monarchs. "To save the Crown it was necessary to execute the monarch", about sums it up. ( )

Churchill unfolds the events and personages of this narrative with striking prose that make it almost as much great literature as great history. He's like the British Livy.

(9/10). ( )

I like Churchill's writing, but you must understand that the events he spends the most time on are the military, political and financial events in England, to the exclusion of science, art and social events. I've read many descriptions of the attack on Bunker Hill during the American Revolution, and none of them were as clear as this one written by an Englishman. He simply tells what happened and in his simplicity, he is very moving. This history is written in broad strokes. Normally, I would be bored to tears reading about so many battles and politicians, yet I found this riveting. I can only credit the writer. ( )

This third book in Churchill's magnificent treatise on the English-speaking peoples deals with the upheavals that occurred in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries--including the American Revolution.

On this subject, Churchill provides a balanced, yet uniquely British perspective.
