Gandhi's autobiography. Think of it as a prequel to Nelson Mandela and MLK

False equivalency. Neither Jesus nor Ganhi as follows:
1) As mentioned before, gasing Kurds who had the temerity to not want to be controlled by the Brits after getting rid of the Ottamans. He also seriously wanted to gas German cities in WW2, but US Bomber command was rightly horrified and quashed that immediately. Note the Dresden raid, also approved by Churchill, even though there were some minor military targets in the resort city, was explicitly approved to kill civilians, and in this case the massed refugees there, with the again stated purpose of breaking civilian moral. There a common thread here, in case you didn't notice... vomit
2) Praising the clever technology of dropping time delayed bombs onto farmer's fields in Iraq to force them into cities and starve when again, the Iraquis didn't want to have the Brits in charge after WW1.
3) Deliberately starving German civilians - literally grandparents, women, and children which he acknowledged them as targets (okay, just the children and grandparents so I guess he's not so bad) after the signing of the armistice. This deliberate targeting of civilians was in violation of several treaties Great Britian had signed, and he acknowledged this was the aim blockading all food to force the German's into signing the "Peace Treaty" as dictated by France and Britian.

Several British generals in occupied Germany asked to be relieved because the suffering was was so horrible, and extensive. So Mr. First-Lord-of-the-Admiralty (he may no longer have been in that position, but it makes his knowledge of blatantly violating treaties explicit, and his actions unconscionable) ends up creating the perfect situation for propeling the Nazis into power. In fact Hitler got his start at in the chaos that resulted from this.

You could write BOOKS on the abuses in India - oh, wait, there have been several. Don't forget the Bengali Famine in WW2 that killed 3 million in 1943. I guess because that's not 98% of Bengali's that it makes in OK reference what was happening in Europe. Whether it was deliberate - and please note going all the way back to the Irish Potato famine, the British administrations have had a track record of letting "surplus population" die (the quote is in the famous Dicken's story for a reason, and comes from the British conservative political response to the Irish Potato Famine), so even if it was an "accident", it was the same "accident" that happened again and again. I believe that is called negligent homicide when done by an individual.

Churchill was an evil, racist man who did some good, and some great things. In the process of achieving those did so much harm that the tally sheet is unequivocal. To use his own words in his 1937 testimony at the Palestine Royal Commission:

BTW where did they go when their place was taken. I guess they just conveniently disappeared, or their numbers magically were reduced over 90%. Nono

About the same price in India for the paperback, but content is invaluable.

For the $1 credit. Did you get an email after or some notice during the purchase? I'm curious if it is for this ebook or any.

Maybe you should not turn a blind eye to who he really was. Did more harm than good. Maybe people can look into THAT.
More harm than good? Care to back that statement up?
