Churchill's Birthday

Winston Churchill was born on this day in 1874. 

Whenever you hear people say that no one is indispensable ask them to consider what would have happened to the world if Churchill had not become prime minister in 1940.

There's a book on it I read, Dominion, where Lord Halifax succeeds Neville Chamberlain. He takes a much more conciliatory tone towards Nazi Germany than Churchill did.

Really interesting book if you are into alternate history. By CJ Sansom.

I'll be reading that one.
