Britain's Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, gifted speaker and fine writer, who had, during the Second World War, led his country from her darkest hour to final victory as part of the Allies, was chosen by the Swedish Academy in Stockholm to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Winston Churchill had produced more than 30 books including collections of his speeches. The oeuvre ranged from a novel through biography, autobiography, history, and travel. Five volumes of war memoirs written after 1945, when World War II ended, were regarded as Churchill's greatest work.
