    Darkest Hour

    Just watched "Darkest Hour" how Winston Churchill formed a united parliament and the British people and the nearness of the struggle that faced Englandicon, to sue for peace or carry the fight.
    Its a behind the scenes stuff of those that tried to de-rail him a nice touch was when Winston caught the tube train to Westminster and his conversation to those in the carriage.
    Right or wrong like him or hate him for a time the fate of nations was in his hands we know the outcome but it was not without sacrifice.
    His oratory skills were unmatched though his disposition to those around him was of perilous.
    This is a fairly good movie to watch.

    That was a powerful scene. I wonder if there was any actual basis for it.

    From what I can gather from what I searched for he would disappear and pop up in London somewhere this is a fact but whether he caught the tube train like the movie says may just be a bit of Hollywood flare but no one can disprove he did do it.
    I have a few of his books the 6 volume set for WWII which one also has to have The Struggle for Europe By Chester Wilmot to accompany the set (which I have), his WWI 2 volume set (Large) The World Crisis 1911-1918, also a single on My Early Life written by him I think all H/c's and a few soft covers on him I will get to read them when I hang up the hard hat.



    If it was not for the broome handle pistol he carried then he might not have survived his war time life think he was captured twice and escaped twice.
