early days in the military to his years as Prime Minister, his years as Secretary of War, his years as an author putting together a history of England in many volumes, and his years as an elder statesman predicting the problems of the cold war. The part about the 2nd world war was extremely interesting. Churchill believed himself to be the mediator and referee between Roosevelt and Stalin. On one hand, he felt Roosevelt was too trusting of Stalin, while Churchill had had more experience of him in war. He and Roosevelt also had some disagreements about how the countries would be divided after the war. Johnson intimates that Churchill was actually relieved to be working with Truman at the end of the war, who he considered to be more practical. I’m listening at the same time to some documentaries about England, and I happened to be on the 1940’s with many recordings of Winston Churchill’s voice giving speeches during the war.
