AZ Quotes: A Cornucopia of Things Churchill Never Said

Much of my labor in the Churchill Vine­yard involves research­ing quo­ta­tions “AZ.” My 650-page books and ebooks, Churchill by Him­self and Churchill in His Own Words, are the largest sources of Churchill’s phi­los­o­phy, max­ims, reflec­tions and ripostes accom­pa­nied by a valid source for each entry. There are 4,150 entries, but a new, expand­ed and revised edi­tion is com­ing. It will include a much larg­er appen­dix of “Red Herrings”—oft-repeated pas­sages he nev­er said but con­stant­ly ascribed to him.

“Red Her­rings” are part of what quotemas­ter Nigel Rees calls “Churchillian Drift.” (Click here for the full descrip­tion).…

Cruise around Britain with Hillsdale College, 1-13 June 2019

A cruise to remember

The Hills­dale Col­lege Cruise in June 2019 is a spec­tac­u­lar jour­ney around Britain. Look­ing at the cal­en­dar, you will  find that it coin­cides with a his­toric event, the 75th Anniver­sary of D-Day. Around that same time, Hills­dale Col­lege Press pub­lish­es the final doc­u­ment vol­ume of Win­ston S. Churchill, the offi­cial biog­ra­phy. This marks com­ple­tion of the great work, fifty-six years since the project began. The longest biog­ra­phy in his­to­ry, it offers a trove of new mate­r­i­al for read­ers, stu­dents and schol­ars.

Hills­dale cruis­es have a fine rep­u­ta­tion. They are exclu­sive, high qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion­al tours of excit­ing venues, com­bined with stim­u­lat­ing on-board lec­tures on a vari­ety of sub­jects.…
