Their Finest Hour

I implore Americans to read books again. It will be difficult at first, have you given up reading for some time. But I want Americans to force themselves to read. Whatever they read, they should throw a history book in every once in a while, even if the reading is a bit dry, they can push forward knowing that they’ll possess knowledge few others do.

Right now, I’m reading, Their Finest Hour, by Winston Churchill. The book opens like this:

MORAL OF THIS WORK:
In War: Resolution
In Defeat: Defiance
In Victory: Magnanimity
In Peace: Good Will

THEME OF THIS VOLUME:
How the British people held the fort ALONE till those who hitherto had been half blind were half ready.

In the theme of course, he spoke of Roosevelt.
