This is an auction for THE SECOND WORLD WAR by Winston Churchill.

This is an auction for the complete book: ALL SIX VOLUMES of the history (not four of the six volumes, as I see in another auction, or a single volume, as I see in yet another auction).

Churchill's history has to be read to be believed. It is very exciting, and a must-read for anyone interested in how the War was lost (by the bad guys) and won (by us: by the time I got to the end of 1940 the outcome was obvious: the Germans were going to win. It was merely a question of when).

There is a comprehensive Wikipedia entry on this and Churchill's other historical writings. See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winston_Churchill_as_historian

The section on this book concludes:

"...The Second World War can still be read with great profit by students of the period, provided it is seen mainly as a memoir by a leading participant rather than as an authoritative history by a professional and detached historian. The Second World War, particularly the period between 1940 and 1942 when Britain was fighting almost alone, was after all the climax of Churchill's career and his personal account of the inside story of those days is unique and invaluable. But since the archives have been opened far more accurate and reliable histories have been written."

... which is a fair summary.
