STANDING IN THE STORM, The Many Worlds of William Alan Webb

We Sleep At Night Because America's Armed Forces, Police and Fire Fighters Never Do

Winnie…yet again

Good morning bookies!

West Tennessee is bathed in this eerie yellow light, something at once familiar and alien. Simultaneously, the sky is an odd color: blue. The temperature is still way below normal, of course. Global warming, don’t you know?

There is a new biography of Churchill, as if you needed one. And I know what you’re thinking, ‘great, another 1200 pages I’ve gotta read.’ But this one is different. This biography doesn’t go along with the recent trend of bashing Churchill as some sort of clownish dolt that somehow didn’t keep England from winning World War Two, no, this one actually gives the man credit for leading the winning side and perhaps having something to do with victory in 1945. Plus, it’s only 192 pages long!

I’m not sure how you could write a Churchill biography that’s only 192 pages, but apparently you can and I, for one, am glad of it. Anything that might get younger folks to read up on one of the 20th centuries greatest men..

New Churchill biography for less than 5 pounds (that’s weight, not money)
