However, this e-book had one big flaw, which almost spoilt my reading of it. How an ebook is prepared and published, I'm not sure. Presumably the an original copy is scanned by a machine and transferred into a format that can publish it via the Internet. In this book, and I haven't finished it yet, the pages are littered with errors, to the point that it stops your flow as you have to sit there and work out what the word should be. To give an example; the word 'Une' cropped up. Eventually, I realised that the word that should be there was 'line'. The capital 'U' was in fact, 'li'.
It may seem to be a petty complaint, but these types of errors are there in great numbers. The worst I've come across in the ebooks that I've read so far.
tried to ignore it whilst Hitler and his gang gobbled up other countries and got away with it.The few would never have
been so few if we had armed ourselves properly and faced up to reality. Fascinating and well written,Churchill's famous
book deserves to be read.
I must add that the book is not always easy and that it contains a great deal of fact. It is not a beach or airplane read for everyone but it is a book that everyone (and in particular out political representatives) should or MUST read!
