Arthur Balfour described The World Crisis as "Winston's brilliant autobiography, disguised as a history of the universe." "The volumes are a mix of military history, written with Churchill's usual narrative flair, diplomatic and political history, portraits of other political and military figures, and personal memoir, written in a colourful manner." - Wiki.
