New Churchill Phrase & Quote Index

New Churchill Phrase & Quote Index

A new Phrase Index to Churchill quotes is available.

My Churchill quo­ta­tions book, Churchill By Him­self, is being updat­ed and cor­rect­ed for a new edi­tion called Churchill in His Own Words, with an even­tu­al e-book ver­sion as well. It con­tains a new Key Phrase Index that will great­ly assist read­ers in find­ing the quo­ta­tion they require.

Since the pag­i­na­tion of the new book will not change (we found only one quote which had to be removed as fic­ti­tious), the Phrase Index can also be used by present own­ers of Churchill By Him­self. For a copy please con­tact me.…

Churchill and the Holocaust

In the Jan­u­ary 2009 issue of Com­men­tary, Hil­lel Halkin penned an inter­est­ing piece, “The Jew­ish State & Its Arabs,” which result­ed in a flur­ry of read­er com­ment on the Com­men­tary web­site.

One read­er had the impres­sion that Churchill “over­re­act­ed” to the 1944 assas­si­na­tion of Lord Moyne by mem­bers of the Jew­ish Lehi (Stern Gang). Anoth­er wrote some­thing I just could not let pass with­out rejoinder:

…had Churchill giv­en an order to bomb Auschwitz, rather than sim­ply rec­om­mend that it be bombed, it would have been bombed. He did not do so, pre­sum­ably, because he was loath to quar­rel with his gen­er­al staff and did not wish to stand accused of risk­ing British pilots and air crews in order to save Jew­ish lives that had no mil­i­tary value.…
