A great man

Just finished the third and final volume of William Manchester's biography of Winston Churchill (finished by Paul Reid). Massive.

I remember Churchill's death. I was eleven. How long ago it all seems. Margaret Thatcher's recent death seemed an end of an era, but her floruit was, so to speak, just the day before yesterday. Churchill's public life began in the reign of Queen Victoria.
