5.0 out of 5 stars Churchill Triumphant, 19 Oct. 2010
Max Hastings has written a superb book. He correctly recognises Churchill's greatness as well as his failings . He also demonstrates successfully how much greater a human being Churchill was compared to Roosevelt and Stalin. However it is sad to be reminded that our Generals were not in the same league as Patton Mcarthur Zhukov and other Allied Generals not to mention a host of Germans. This makes Churchill's contribution during the war even more impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars How we lived then !, 1 May 2010
This is a superb evocation of a sadly neglected period of post war Britain.It is a welcome reminder of what was an encouraging era in many respects of social and community life despite the continuing hardship of rationing for most of the period.At 700 pages it may be a long read but the pace rarely falters. For somone born in 1947 it was a pleasure to be reminded again how we all lived then.
