The second volume in the WWII history “written with simplicity, lucidity, and gusto” by the legendary leader and Nobel Prize winner (The New York Times). In Their Finest Hour, Winston Churchill describes the invasion of France and a growing sense of dismay in Britain. Should Britain meet France’s desperate pleas for reinforcements or conserve their resources in preparation for the inevitable German assault? In the book’s second half, entitled simply “Alone,” Churchill discusses Great Britain’s position as the last stronghold against German conquest: the battle for control of the skies over Britain, diplomatic efforts to draw the United States into the war, and the spreading global conflict. Their Finest Hour is part of the epic six-volume account of World War II told from the viewpoint of a man who led in the fight against tyranny, and enriched with extensive primary sources including memos, letters, orders, speeches, and telegrams, day-by-day accounts of reactions as the drama intensifies. Throughout these volumes, we listen as strategies and counterstrategies unfold in response to Hitler’s conquest of Europe, planned invasion of England, and assault on Russia, in a mesmerizing account of the crucial decisions made as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

It was a city with high domestic violence, parental negligence, and rising youth gang involvement. It was a picture that was far from perfect.

Things began to spiral out of control with the hunters, the hunted, and the haunted prowling the city streets at will. Then something unimaginable happened. It is the Finest Wine miracle. Learn how to ignite an affectionate environment wherever you find yourself-at home, work, school, or even a boardroom. It is a revelation of how ordinary people could be used to do extraordinary things. ""With this well-written and highly inspired and inspiring drama book that is just about to be shot into a movie, it is believed that many more people will be touched, homes healed, broken relationships restored, and many affected youths saved from their reckless ways of living."" -Evangelist Mike Bamiloye, internationally acclaimed Christian movie director, author, actor, teacher, and leader
