Vol. IV A History of the English-Speaking Peoples
  Buttercup25 | Jan 31, 2020 |
Took me a while to get to it, but I've finally started and then completed the final volume in the Churchill 'A History of the English Speaking Peoples' series.

A rather 'neat' comprehensive series that covers more history than other books I've read on English history. Though it was also wasn't exactly as deep as some of the others I've read.

I learned a lot, while also covering some ground I already knew.

I kind of figured I'd have more to write, but I can't think of much. It's nonfiction. Readable. This specific volume tells the history of the English speaking people in Canada, Australia, USA, England, New Zealand, Tasmania, South Africa, and Ireland. Don't recall anything specifically relating to Wales or Scotland. Except maybe in passing. From the founding of New Zealand, Tasmania, and Australia, the expansion of Canada both in terms of government (i.e., the colonies merged), and in terms of land area. And the expansion of the USA westward. English history from roughly the end of the first Emperor Napoleon, to 1902 and the Boer War.

Interesting to see how the parties got established, merged, wiggled, worked together and split into pieces. Liberals, Whigs, Conservatives (Tories) and Labour. Plus various groups that never got anywhere. Oh, and Irish Nationalists and Irish Unionists. Various prime ministers, Gladstone and Disraeli. ( )

WSC began this history of the English Speaking Peoples in 1937, and it didn't see much work until after the war memoirs came out in 1954. It's not what I'd call history, but a very long magazine article revealing the past as WSC saw it. There's his take on the USA for all to see. Well written but unoriginal. ( )

One of the best written, articulate books I've ever come across. I found the American Civil War insights especially instructional and fascinating in its viewpoint from a non-American reference. I look forward to the other volumes in this series. ( )

A good history, capably written.
