History happening as you read
am 21. Juli 2013
I was happy to see Churchill's works on Kindle. It took me a little while to get used to the level of detail and slow pace of the book. This is very detailed, lots of letters and speeches from the 1920-1940s and a lot of names. At first I was a bit overwhelmed, but after a few chapters, the book pulled me in and I really started reading.
From Churchill's point of view the war unfolds from the mistakes at the end of WWI, the political play for peace, the Twilight war and the Norwegian campaign. It's wonderfully written. The best part is how it really manages to convey the haste and patience required to run the war - decisions must be taken now, resources divided between the now and in two years, the amount of time it will take to build a battleship... Can't wait to read about the Battle of Britain in the next one.
