The third volume of War Speeches, containing speeches Churchill made in 1942, was published by Cassell in 1942. The War news at least seemed better in 1942. Churchill summed it up "This is not the end; it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning", thus providing the title THE END OF THE BEGINNING. It follows the series binding in pale blue cloth, with a similar dustwrapper of brown blending to black. The first edition was followed by three later printings

The first American edition was similar to the previous volume, but slightly shorter. The Canadian first edition continued the series binding and jacket style. The Australian first edition now had a dustwrapper style very similar to the British, but the binding was red cloth, rather than the pale blue of the English.
