The second volume in the Post War Speeches series was EUROPE UNITE, an idea which Churchill worked diligently towards. The Cassell first edition came out in 1950. 12,500 copies make this the most plentiful of the series. The actual printing was done in Holland, and the higher quality white paper was far superior to that available in still rationed England. Binding was now medium green, gilt stamped, with the series black jacket. The green cloth unfortunately is prone to splotches of discoloration from condensation. Interest in America was waning, so the US edition was only 2500 copies, bound in blue green cloth stamped in dark green and black, apparently using sheets from the English edition. Although not the lowest production, this is probably the most difficult to find of the US post war volumes.
