MAY 1940

Just finished SIX MINUTES IN MAY: How Churchill Unexpectedly Became Prime Minister'  by Nicholas Shakespeare.  Splendid prequel to John Lukacs' SIX DAYS IN LONDON, MAY 1940'.   Civilized politics at its most ruthless.

My Dad was 24 on the 7 May, 1940.  And we think we live in grim times.
