AROUND AND ABOUT: FINEST HOUR 150, SPRING 2011

==================

AROUND & ABOUT


Manfred Weidhorn sends us an excerpt from the Diaries of Josef Goebbels, Nazi propaganda chief, dated 8 May 1941, a year after Churchill had come to power. Hitler and Goebbels regularly lambasted Churchill an aging, delusional liar, Prof. Weidhorn writes; but in his personal daily diary, Goebbels reflected on what he really thought:

"I study Churchill's new book Step by Step, Speeches from 1936-39 and essays. This man is a strange mixture of heroism and cunning. If he had come to power in 1933, we would not be where we are today. And I believe that he will give us a few more problems yet. But we can and will solve them. Nevertheless, he is not to be taken lightly as we usually take him."
