The name of this blog was inspired by a quote from Winston Churchill. “History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.”
This quote comes from a speech Churchill made to the House of Commons in November 1940, as part of a tribute to Neville Chamberlain.
