Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I'm off reading this period, glance at Insanity Bir, and open Marjorie's British Commonwealth by Ramsay Muir, at the every page that shows so plainly how Napoleon first won Europe and then set about Britain. Just as Hitler would like to do now. So nicely put. These two books suddenly show me how we stand in this war and how we must fight for our very existence. . . .Yes, I see all at once what we are up against -- How British would fight against any invasion here.'
