Churchill and the Jews by Martin Gilbert,
This review is from: Churchill and the Jews (Paperback)
If you have a fascination for history, for Winston Churchill and or the Jews then this is the book for you. I rarely find a book which so engrosses me that I find it difficult to stop at the end of a chapter; I must read more! This book is such a one. So well researched and written by Martin Gilbert I highly recommend it. I read about Waddesdon Manor decades ago, about the philanthropic Rothschild family and their work in the community and read about it again in this book in relation to Churchill from a young child and upward but finally I visited the Manor, April 2011, and it simply blew me away to see all the things I read about. It is a fact of history that any individual, corporation or nation which honours the Jews will be blessed and Churchill knew this (it's in the book) and Britain was blessed at one time up until 1948. To disregard the Jew is to put oneself or a nation in a vulnerable position, without Divine protection (again, in the book). Churchill, in spite of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign of WWI, was the leader Britain needed in WWII, full of wisdom, intelligence and unique insight; he knew his stuff!
