Eggs or Anarchy tells of England's WW II Ministry of Food attempt to ensure there would be food on the shelves. The minister and originally a commoner, Lord Woolton, has an entrepreneurial background which he used to the country's advantage to augment the established bureaucracy. Lord Woolton, ever mindful of nutritional benefit to the nation's health, dictated the types and quantity of food available. He saw the war as an opportunity to serve his country, was terribly offended by those who saw it as an opportunity for profit. Most proud of his success in providing healthy meals to children and pregnant women, in his mind, thus ensuring the future health of the nation. Less than flattering view of PM Churchill. ( )
