It was good. I learned that Churchhill existed, that he escaped prison, that he fought in wars, that Hitler criticized himself, and that his father died when he was 45. Churchill was a amazing builder, master fighter, awesome prime minister (oh you silly, not a gargantaur prime, cool king.

This was a nice antidote to the lectures at my WW1 conference. Also strangely moving about his childhood.

My boys thought this was good and recommended to me.

I liked it. It's fun and I learned some interesting facts about Churchill. Of course it's silly, and they made up stuff like a diary for C. I can see why the boys liked it and am glad they are learning some history. It's a series and they actually devoured a bunch of these from the library.
