Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War, How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West lost the World, by Patrick J. Buchanan, Crown Publishers, 2008. This is a very well written book, an argument, if you will, for the villainy and incompetence of Winston Churchill and the fall of the British Empire. There were at least four great villains in the twentieth century; Hitler, Stalin, Churchill, and FDR. All four were war criminals and Buchanan shows clearly the culpability of Churchill in the destruction of history's greatest empire. This is a must read for students of history.
