|But will you compare him to Reagan?|
Historians will always link Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul. Both were giants of the late 20th century.
The post that precedes this post is an excerpt from a new book by Douglas Brinkley entitled The Boys of Pointe du Hoc: Ronald Reagan, D-Day, and the U.S. Army 2nd Ranger Battalion. The excerpt deals with the speech that Reagan gave at Pointe du Hoc on June 6, 1984. It was written by Peggy Noonan. The article references Peggy's book What I Saw at the Revolution, her informal account of the years she spent in the White House. If you get some free time, you might want to read it. It is wonderful.
