Kirja-arvosteluja

Winston Churchill was able to lead The Allies to victory against the Germans in World War II
while writing like a poet - "The Norwegian mountains run into the ocean in a continuous fringe of islands."

His mastery ranged from balancing the mass confusion of internal British political divisions
through engaging reluctant President Roosevelt
and on to distant commanding of The Royal Navy.

It is still hard to understand why he didn't want Freedom for India.

If the first volume was re-named in American English it would have been called, "I told you so, but y'all didn't listen." I like Churchill and history but I must admit I found the first volume a bit of a gloat at times. I'm onto the second volume very soon. Stay tuned.
