(4),v-xi,(1),1-332. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The fifth volume of Sir Winston Churchill's post-war speeches coversa wide stretch of time and spans an historic period. As Prime Minister he was the country's spokesman at the time of the Queen's Coronation, on her return from the Commonwealth tour, and on the death of Queen Mary. His speech in Westminster Hall at the celebrations to mark his 80th birthday was made on an occasion unique in Parliamentary annals. In the House of Commons hedelivered great speeches on the international problems that still confront us -- German rearmament, the hydrogen bomb, world disarmament; on domestic matters, speeches on National Service and the adoption of a new Army rifle revealed him, as always, a consummate master of the cut and thrust of Parl iamentary debate." - from the dj.
