Wiegrefe: “The Compleat Wrks of Wnstn Chrchl (Abridged)”

The Compleat Wrks (Abridged) by Klaus Wiegrefe

Some things on the web live a long time. “How Win­ston Churchill Stopped the Nazis” by Klaus Wiegrefe was pub­lished ten years ago, but we still get queries about it. This review is there­fore repub­lished for your amuse­ment or forgiveness.

This nine-part arti­cle is odd­ly remind­ful  of “The Com­pleat Wrks of Wilm Shk­spr (Abridged).” In that work, three actors cri­tique all of Shakespeare’s works in a cou­ple of hours.

There’s noth­ing par­tic­u­lar­ly nov­el or new in Der Spiegel‘s series. Attempts to cast Churchill as demo­ni­ac have been going on long before 2021—as bad as today’s stuff is.…

“The Last Lion” Volume III is Published

Over 400 read­ers asked when we will see the third and final vol­ume  of William Manchester’s Churchill biog­ra­phy, The Last Lion: Win­ston Spencer Churchill, Defend­er of the Realm 1940-1965. Answer: Ama­zon was ship­ping copies as of mid-Octo­ber 2012—only twen­ty-four years since Vol­ume II!

Mr. Reid kind­ly asked me to proof the man­u­script for Vol­ume III, as did Mr. Man­ches­ter for Vol­ume II.

This will be good news to the many Man­ches­ter fans who have wait­ed for years. Paul Reid’s vol­ume is writ­ten in the Man­ches­ter style, as dra­mat­ic and grip­ping as the first two vol­umes.…
