My friends at Hillsdale College are celebrating “National Churchill Day” with a special three day offer in which you can download the eight volumes of the Kindle eBooks of the Official Biography of Winston S. Churchill, by Randolph Churchill and Martin Gilbert for free. I am probably most fascinated with Churchill in the time before World War II since there are a lot of similarities to the problems we face today. There offer expires on the 11th so if you are interested in the life of Winston Churchill now is the time to get your copy.
Over the last two weeks I have been enjoying the Killing Jesus and Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot audio books. My wife and I enjoy O’Reilly’s story telling approach to history. This weekend we heard the relationship of the rise of Fidel Castro in Cuba and Kennedy. It seemed particularly timely considering current events. If O’Reilly and Dugard want another historical subject that gets “people engaged with their country”, Martin Luther King seems a natural subject.
