Winston Churchill Books: Where, Please ?

Hi,

Brand new at this.

Have a Palm Organizer (the $ 100) simple one, and I have downloaded a few books to it. Really neat.

Am trying to find books by Winston Churchill (or about him) that are free, and that I can download.

Have really looked, honest, but can't find any.

Can anyone, perhaps, point me to a link that might have some ?

Much thanks,
Bob

Are you talking about the British Prime Minister, Winston S. Churchill, or his American novelist cousin, "plain" Winston Churchill?

If you mean the British one, I'm pretty sure that a number of his books are available as commercial e-Books. He only died in 1965, so all his books are still under copyright protection. I recall seeing the 6-volume "History of WWII" as a commercial download.

To follow up, I've just checked on PG. There's lots of stuff there from the American Mr. Churchill, and a few of the early books from the British one - the stuff he wrote during the Boer War.
