About Me

I have a burning need to know stuff and I love asking awkward questions.

IF ONLY we could have Eisenhower, Taft, and a few others from the generation. Both sides of the aisle had better caliber.

Whereas we had an aging Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden who led us into the Suez Crisis..... [lol]

Actually the immediate post-war era is something I know very little about... except that rationing didn't end until 1954 and austerity measures where still biting deep. Not a great time to be British.

I left you a message on the Philippa Gregory post, but I'm not sure you saw it. -- I just discovered Dan Snow's History Hit podcasts on iTunes today. He has a podcast with Philippa. Have you heard it? It's free here, not sure if it is on your side of the pond.

Thanks. I'll check it out. My next book review is by Dan Snow. I've seen quite a few of his history programmes on the BBC. He's pretty good in a breezy popular sort of way.
