About 30 years ago one of my mentors said to me: “To get a good liberal arts education read everything that Winston Churchill wrote”. I have made a start. I am planning to read his series on WWI.
Some years ago a set of his complete works was for sale.
Does anyone know if they are still available?
I reckon you also have to read around Churchill. The bio’ by Lord Moran, the King’s surgeon attended (almost lived in Churchill’s pocket) for the entire period of his Prime Ministership, is a good start.
Then see some of the people he “sponsored” in WW2, Percy Hobart is one exceptional example, the first man to create and command an armoured brigade in the late 20s, and after Churchill resurrected him, the commander of the largest armoured division in WW 2, 79 Div (RE). See; ‘Armoured Crusader’ by Kenneth Macksey, MC, London: Hutchinson.
This gives a view back upon Winston.
The free world continues to owe WSC a debt of some magnitude. Did anyone know, also, he was a member of the Bricklayers union and wrote papers on prison reform prior to becoming an MP?
