Found a copy this weekend at Goodwill when we dropped off some things from Spring Cleaning.

It's a great read and full of interesting facts I was not aware of. The book takes the episode from the film, Young Winston, and tells a complete and rousing tale of that period in Churchill's life. Makes you want to have a game and I highly recommend it.

I agree. An excellent book.

Just finished it on Audible. Excellent.

Did it include his heroic crossing of a raging torrent? You know, the one that can be stepped over?

Shameless self promoter, advocate of poisoning the natives using airborne gas drops, rampant imperialist, keen on strike breaking using troops and the shooting of protesters during civil unrest.

Gee, now I'm all depressed.

But this board is all about rampant imperialism, isn't it?
