... The Churchill Factor: How One Man Made History Boris Johnson London: Hodder and Stoughton, 2014 John Newsinger When this book was first published back in 2014 it did not seem to be worth the trouble reviewing. It was a truly appalling volume that no one except the right-wing press could possibly take seriously; and they only praised it to advance the career of its author. As a supposed biographical study of Winston Churchill it was altogether worthless, even worse than Johnson's earlier histories' of the Roman Empire and London and they were pretty dire. And dire books are obviously a reflection of their author. Johnson is a serial liar and casual racist, a homophobe ...

2. Churchill and The Focus [Lobster #25 (Jun 1993)]
... (c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 25) June 1993 Last | Contents | Next Issue 25 Churchill and The Focus Mike Hughes Introduction From 1935 until the outbreak of the Second World War Winston Churchill was a determined and vociferous opponent of the British government's policy of appeasing Hitler. In the popular imagination Churchill's prominence at the head of the anti-appeasement movement has become a picture of the prophet crying in the wilderness. A fantasy encouraged by himself and his friends, this was also a view endorsed by some of those who had sought to explain their support for appeasement in the light of some notion of a pro-appeasement consensus. ...

On the one hand, there are the Churchillians, who regard him as one of the great men of the twentieth century, who dominates modern times and deserves personal credit for having saved Britain from defeat in the Second World War and the world from Nazi tyranny. This is still very much the dominant viewpoint and forms one of the cornerstones of conservative ideology ...

... EMPIRE FIRST Churchill's War Against D-Day Graeme Bowman Self-published, 2020, h/b1 Simon Matthews Hats off to Winston? Not in this book. The continued deification of Churchill is one aspect of WW2 that is worth re-visiting, and over 450 pages Graeme Bowman proves, comprehensively – with a few specific caveats – that he was a menace to the UK's efficient conduct of the war. His personal history, the milieu and context within which he thrived, and his political career are all set out. Central to this, and typical of his generation, was an uncritical belief in the British Empire. In practical terms this meant control of the ...

5. The Dungavel Handicap [Free Article]
... The Dungavel Handicap Scotland, Churchill and Rudolf Hess, 1941 Simon Matthews The writing of history is quite properly treated as a discipline. Many reputable historians, therefore, tend to be conservative, requiring multiple archival sources, an abundance of documentation and testimony from respectable eye- witnesses before reaching their conclusions. This often means that a very high level of proof is required before they engage in analysis of problematic events in the recent past. This is curious on two counts. Firstly, when studying ancient history, for instance, academics often base significant theories and make findings on very slender evidence: a few bones, one map, a single account. Secondly, an approach ...

If genuine, it shows, as has been alleged in the past, that Roosevelt was indeed warned of the impending Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. This appeared in the Internet newsletter, The Konformist on 11 March 1998. (On which see Sources below.) The Konformist's editor, Robert Sterling believes this to be a fake - largely ...

... A comment on Simon Matthews' The Dungavel Handicap: Scotland, Churchill and Rudolf Hess, 1941' Scott Newton Simon Matthews has written a very interesting piece about the Rudolf Hess affair of May 1941 in this issue of Lobster,1 but there are a couple of comments that I would like to add to his account. First, back in the late 1980s and the mid-1990s I wrote about the topic of Britain's appeasement of Germany before 1939, and the continuation of this strategy after the outbreak of war. The results of this work appeared in a series of articles2 and a book, Profits of Peace (Oxford University Press, 1996). What became very ...

8. Plotting for Peace and War (Book review) [Lobster #22 (Nov 1991)]
... Saved the West John Costello Bantam Press 1991 John Costello has set out to provide, in the words of the publisher's blurb, "the first behind the scenes account of the agonizing history of 1940'. His aim is to debunk the Churchillian myth that in 1940 Britain was united in its determination to fight Nazism to the bitter end. Churchill may have been resolute but Halifax, the Foreign Secretary and Butler, the second in command in the Foreign Office, were keen to come to an accommodation with Germany. With the collapse of France both considered that the war was unwinnable. To continue hostilities in the absence of any allies outside the Commomwealth and Empire risked a shattering defeat ...

... /7 /88) Zametica drops a few hints about this curious episode. In 1941, says Zametica, many powerful members of British society - political, military, commercial, among others - were dedicated to attaining peace. Losing money and apparently losing the war did not go down well with them. These people faced three problems: Churchill in Britain, Hitler in Germany, and a lack of strong leadership within their ranks. ' This is obviously true: from the point of view of the British ruling class, taking sides with the Bolsheviks against Germany was an absurdity. Yet it is still slightly shocking to read it stated as bluntly as that. Zametica offers some ...

... no matter how stupid, is acceptable as long as it contributes to this end; and as we shall see, Bower has embraced stupidity – there's no other word for it – with a vengeance. Criticising Edward Heath for being only half-hearted in his attempt at dismantling Britain's socialist economy in the 1970s, he conveniently forgets that Winston Churchill, Anthony Eden, Harold Macmillan and Alec Douglas Home – all Tories – had held the office of Prime Minister throughout the 1950s and into the 1960s without apparently realising that their governments were running a socialist Britain. But this is to mistake Bower's purpose. His intention is to elevate and celebrate Margaret Thatcher's greatness and Heath is the ideal ...
