The second volume of War Speeches, containing speeches Churchill made in 1941, had its first edition in 1942. THE UNRELENTING STRUGGLE follows the series binding in pale blue cloth, with a similar dustwrapper of brown blending to black. There were 4 printings altogether and this title is proving the most difficult of the 7 to find in first edition.

The US edition now had a new publisher- Little Brown & Co., Boston resulting in a new appearance- red cloth with titles gilt on black panels, wrapped in a red/black photo dj.The Canadian first edition retained the same published, but now had a look very close to the American edition. For the first time, there was a 1st Australian edition, published by Cassell, with a unique and striking jacket design, but a drab oatmeal cloth binding. This volume alone of the 7 speeches volumes also had an English language edition published in Stockhom by the Continental Book Co., with a unique two tone brown binding, and a jacket very similar to the English first edition.
