The fifth part of Churchill’s account of the First World War. Aftermath addresses some of the complications and disappointments following Armistice day which ultimately set the stage for the Second World War. In fact, the same year this volume was published, Churchill faced his own complications and disappointments, as the Conservatives lost 10 Downing Street and Churchill his Cabinet post as Chancellor of the Exchequer. The ensuing 1930s would come to be called Churchill’s "Wilderness Years" – a decade he spent out of power and out of favor, warning about the dangers of a rising Nazi Germany, often at odds with both his party leadership and prevailing public sentiment.


Seldom found in this condition.
