Well Marc,

Even if this is not the place to express historicall opinions, I'm  
myself so convinced that Churchill and F.D. Roosevelt was two decis?ve  
persons for the history!, if you write something about Churchill it  
will be wellcome for me, I'm (I think) one of the relatively few  
persons who has read their 13 Volumes of his Memories!

Saludos cordiales
