In October 1962, at the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union appeared to be sliding inexorably toward a nuclear conflict over the placement of missiles in Cuba. Veteran Washington Post reporter Michael Dobbs has pored over previously untapped American, Soviet, and Cuban sources to produce the most authoritative book yet on the Cuban missile crisis.

Behind the scenes of WW1 with Winston.
Book 2, 1915: from Winston standpoint, 1915 was only Gallipoli/Dardanelles Campaign. If you look for something else, you will be disappointed.
Winston is very busy in trying to proof that Dardanelles fiasco was only due to Earl Kitchener.
After listening to this book I am persuaded that Kitchener was far more responsible for the fiasco than Churchill, anyway I was interested on history. This book is more a huge defense document to be used in a Court.

Churchill's history of the Second World War is, and will remain, the definitive work. Lucid, dramatic, remarkable for its breadth and sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it is universally acknowledged as a magnificent reconstruction.

Dealing with war on a giant scale, The Grand Alliance focuses on events as Britain, after fighting a desperate battle alone, was joined in the struggle against the enemy by Soviet Russia and the United Sates. Hitler's invasion of Russia brought to an end a period of almost exactly a year during which Britain and her Empire had stood alone. Six months later, the United States, attacked by Japan, joined the war and the Grand Alliance was born.

Gene Wilder is one of the great comic actors who defined the 1970s and 1980s in movies. From his work with Woody Allen, to the rich group of movies he made with Mel Brooks, to his partnership on screen with Richard Pryor, Wilder's performances are still discussed and celebrated today.

A must if you want to know Gene Wilder as a human being.
He completely discloses his personal life, like he did in the few interviews he had.
I give 4 stars out of 5 to the story because I was hoping for more details about his movies.
