Always good, occasionally great
- John M
Winston Churchill knew more about WW2 than anyone.
And he wrote about it with an excellence no one else has equalled. I would certainly listen to it again. I am amazed at how candid yet diplomatic Churchill is, and how beautifully he writes. Imagine a great world leader, also a brilliant journalist, who knows first hand the course of the most important war in history describing events and the personalities of the principal world rulers with penetrating insight and great humor. There is so much to be learned by this book, listening to it twice would only be good for starters.
The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is a brilliant book and I loved it. However, the account of a journalist who lived through the war and observed it first hand pales in comparison with Churchills authority and intimate knowledge of events.
I thought of him as Churchill. I felt Churchill was telling me about the war.
Triumph and Tragedy. The birth of the world today.
This is one book I am going to get a hard copy and take notes.
