Churchill and Orwell: The Fight for Freedom
by Thomas E. Ricks



>>>DOWNLOAD BOOK Churchill and Orwell: The Fight for Freedom


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a dual biography of Winston Churchill and George Orwell, who preserved democracy from the threats of authoritarianism, from the left and right alike.

Both George Orwell and Winston Churchill came close to death in the mid-1930's—Orwell shot in the neck in a trench line in the Spanish Civil War, and Churchill struck by a car in New York City. If they'd died then, history would scarcely remember them. At the time, Churchill was a politician on the outs, his loyalty to his class and party suspect. Orwell was a mildly successful novelist, to put it generously. No one would have predicted that by the end of the 20th century they would be considered two of the most important people in British history for having the vision and courage to campaign tirelessly, in words and in deeds, against the totalitarian threat from both the left and the right. In a crucial moment, they responded first by seeking the facts of the matter, seeing through the lies and obfuscations, and then they acted on their beliefs. Together, to an extent not sufficiently appreciated, they kept the West's compass set toward freedom as its due north.

It's not easy to recall now how lonely a position both men once occupied. By the late 1930's, democracy was discredited in many circles, and authoritarian rulers were everywhere in the ascent. There were some who decried the scourge of communism, but saw in Hitler and Mussolini "men we could do business with," if not in fact saviors. And there were others who saw the Nazi and fascist threat as malign, but tended to view communism as the path to salvation. Churchill and Orwell, on the other hand, had the foresight to see clearly that the issue was human freedom—that whatever its coloration, a government that denied its people basic freedoms was a totalitarian menace and had to be resisted.

In the end, Churchill and Orwell proved their age's necessary men. The glorious climax of Churchill and Orwell is the work they both did in the decade of the 1940's to triumph over freedom's enemies. And though Churchill played the larger role in the defeat of Hitler and the Axis, Orwell's reckoning with the menace of authoritarian rule in Animal Farm and 1984 would define the stakes of the Cold War for its 50-year course, and continues to give inspiration to fighters for freedom to this day. Taken together, in Thomas E. Ricks's masterful hands, their lives are a beautiful testament to the power of moral conviction, and to the courage it can take to stay true to it, through thick and thin.

Churchill and Orwell makes a great Father's Day gift!

And so it's almost Shakespearean to see McMaster in the White House as the national security adviser faced with the same situation, in many ways, that the Vietnam generals hadBut it had only been with that novel, published in 1949, and its predecessor Animal Farm, published in 1945, that Orwell had become a household nameLet's talk about Churchill a little bitBut how can Orwell also be a hero to neoconservatives like Norman Podhoretz and leftists like Christopher Hitchens? In a surprisingly moving epilogue, Thomas Ricks concludes, In most places and most of the time, liberty is not a product of military actionGROSS: I want to quote something that you write in your book "Churchill And Orwell: The Fight For Freedom." And again, this is a book - it's a kind of dual biography and looking at how their political views evolved and how it was reflected in their writing and their hatred of both fascism and StalinismAnd I have read again and againI manage, and I edit

But this is - becomes very routine, especially if you work with people you trust and admire as I very much trusted and admired Steve Coll and Len Downie to do their best possible job after I did my best possible jobFirst of all, you need to have principlesMcMaster got up and called the story falseI got some information late in 2001, and I decided I wasn't going to publish itAnd on this I blame both the left and the right

He's not trusted by his own partyBut Ricks says the wars following SeptBut do you know why Trump chose Flynn to be his national security adviser? RICKS: In a general way, I do know how Flynn wound up at the White House, which is that Donald Trump is a profoundly ignorant manI've just gotten this leak, a hundred pages of documents, but I don't really care - like, it's not an interesting subject, I don't want to read these hundred pages, I'd rather report on something else, but you felt kind of an obligation to follow through on it? RICKS: Well, a lot of times people call you up and say, I've got this great stuffDon't do my job for me"The struggle to see things as they are is perhaps the fundamental driver of Western civilizationRICKS: That's exactly rightI suddenly wasnt frightened anymore.His book is also strengthened by the deep experience MrI love itAnd I think it's my favorite passage in the whole book because it speaks so much to today as well as to Orwell's own time 48a4f088c3
