THE WORLD CRISIS [1923-1931]

(Cohen A69) (Woods A31)
Churchill's highly subjective history of the First World War; five volumes (in six books) written over eight years. Initial volumes were first published in the U.S. (by a matter of days), making the American edition the true first edition. Volume I (1911-1914) and Volume II (1915) were published in 1923. Volume III (1916-1918 ) was published in two parts in 1927 (hence the five/in six volumes ultimate format). Volume IV (THE AFTERMATH 1918-1928) was published in 1929; and Volume V (THE UNKNOWN WAR/EASTERN FRONT) in 1931. A one-volume abridgement by the author was soon issued. Most subsequent re-issues have been incomplete, abridged or condensed versions of the original text.
