Winston Churchill writings are going digital! His collected works, which includes his historical works and the texts of speeches he gave during his years as Prime Minister, will all be published by Rosetta Stone, LLC Publishing.

Churchill, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953, was a prolific writer and all of his works, except his “My Early Life,” which is owned by a different publishing company, will be published globally in English by Rosetta Stone. This series of works encompasses forty titles and they are expected to be available in the e-book format next spring. Some of the titles are already available in the U.S. but notably, the books will indeed be published globally in the spring of 2013– and that is a big deal because in the new world of e-books frequently titles are released at different times in different countries instead of being released at the same time for anyone across the globe to buy and read.

Here’s a link to a Wall Street Journal article titled “Churchill’s Writings Headed for E-Books” that offers a more in-depth take on the subject:

And in researching what Churchill e-resources were available I came across a great site that is all about – you guessed it – Winston Churchill! The site is the companion site to The Churchill Centre and Museum at the Churchill War Rooms – located inLondon. And it features a great deal of historical information both about Churchill himself and of course the World War II era; and it  even features a biographical interview with his youngest daughter Lady Mary Soames – for history fans – it is a cool site and definitely worth checking out.
