That was probably the reason I never bothered to listen to your grandfather. He was the one who thought the Neville Chamberlain was a brilliant politician, wasn't he?
No. He was one of the few people I have talked to who actually lived through the war years and told me of Churchill's eagerness to send in planes, ships, men, etc. as a show of force - often with disastrous consequences.
