Never Give In! The Best of Winston Churchill’s Speeches by Winston S. Churchill (2003)

This collection of speeches are a terrific reminder of Churchill’s ability to inspire. Curated by the legendary statesman’s grandson, these rousing addresses span Churchill’s career from World War I to his honorary induction as a US citizen in 1963—and teem with energy and charisma. Even in the face of grave uncertainty—an impending Nazi invasion, bombings in London—Churchill exuded resilience and courage. The speeches are also striking in their candidness. He had no speechwriters or spin-doctors.
