In one of his many memorable quotes, Churchill said, "History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it". "The Gathering Storm" is the first in Churchill's superb series on WW II, and I think it's the best of the lot. I'm an American, so it was especially interesting to read a survey of WW II from a British perspective.
