My copy 1974
Being a great admirer of Winston Churchill made this a fun read. He was a giant and remains a giant to this day. His absolute refusal to give up or yield anything to Hitler -- as he waited on this country to finally come to its senses and enter the war . . . is remarkable. If you like WWII history and admire this man, it is a good read and addition to your library.

What a wonderful way to pick up tidbits about one of the ost influential men of the 20th century. I did not know he wanted Jews to have a home in Palestine in the 1920s, that he helped develop a machine that would cut through barb wire, a precurssor to the modern tank, and that he coined the phrase "iron curtain". An amazing man all round.
