my Dad did not like Churchill but his actions may have saved his life

Interesting that El Alamein might never have happened if Churchill hadn’t insisted on an attack on Greece.

Apparently, instead of finishing off the Italian’s, pre-empting any need for The German’s coming to their rescue, we lost men and material in a pointless attempt to validate his “soft underbelly of Europe” thesis.

On the plus side, my dad was on his way to face the Japs, when his mob had to be diverted to Egypt to help oppose Rommel.
