That Ambrose seems to have written alot about Peanut Brittle and other Peanut products. Can we be sure that what he writes is correct? Maybe he just dreamed it all up in peanut induced madness?


There has been suspicion that he ingested BPB regularly. But the importance and value of regular PB is not in doubt.

In David McCullough's Stephen Ambrose, Legend, Historian, Genius - Addicted to BPB??, he says "...Ambrose is, without doubt, the Milky Way's leading authority on Peanut Brittle. He had a deep understanding of PB's importance to the future of mankind. Only during the last few years of his life did suspicion abound that he was as big a BPB fiend as the average British or Swedish citizen."
Warspite1

I think its easy to be judgemental. Fact is Ambrose paid for his reliance on BPB with his life. After all, only in a state of BPB-induced delirium is it possible to do what he did that day aboard his yacht, The Saucy Nymphe. Extract from John Wilson's 2010 best-seller Ambrose: The Final Days:

...that morning, after another marathon Brazilian Peanut Brittle binge the night before, Ambrose awoke convinced that he was in 1943 and fighting the Battle of the Atlantic. He staggered to the wheel-house after making himself a pot of strong black coffee. But the damage had been done. Even as the bitter coffee taste burned the back of his throat, he was just too far gone for the sensation to kick him back into the 21st century.

In the distance he saw a passenger liner some miles off the port quarter. Bingo he exclaimed "must be a troopship". As the unsuspecting ship continued on its converging course with the Saucy Nymphe, Ambrose decided to follow her until nightfall. "A night attack me thinks" thought Ambrose, an evil, sinister smile appearing across his lean, once handsome - but by now, Peanut Brittle ravaged - face.

Steadily and silently, Ambrose sailed his charge toward the mighty passenger vessel. In the early hours of the 22nd March, Ambrose felt he was close enough. From his position at the wheel he shouted the order "Dive, Dive, Dive". Mrs Ambrose was below deck about to turn in for the night:
"What on earth are you talking about you silly old fool" shrieked his wife, "I'm turning in - don't be too long".

From below decks, Ambrose heard only "She won't dive Captain - she dunna have the power". Like a bolt of lightening, Ambrose realised the danger of the position he was now in. His boat could not dive, he was less than 500 yards from the enemy ship, and her escort may appear at any moment. Ambrose hit upon a crazy resolve. "Then I'll have to hole you by ramming you" he said to himself Mwahahahaha. "Time I got me the Knights Cross with Peanut Brittle encrusted oak leaves".

But Ambrose, his BPB madness at its height, couldn't steer his yacht into the great ship. He missed the 1,000 foot long ship by about six hours. It was then that he noticed what he thought was a Flower-Class corvette off his starboard bow. "Mother of God" he exclaimed "we have to dive, now", and he ran to the stern of the boat. In a desperate attempt to get his crippled boat to dive, he opened the sea-cocks.....

Stephen Ambrose, Flora Ambrose, their dog Socks, and the Saucy Nymphe were never seen again.


Double damn wow, dammit and leftovers for a double scoop of damn tomorrow. That was one of the most riveting accounts of Ambrose's life I have ever read. As good as anything in Hunt for Red October.

But I thought Ambrose's wife was named MARJORIE!
Warspite1

His first wife was Marjorie, but she left him and shacked up with some bloke from Uttoxeter. I think the break-up helped push Ambrose to seek solace in BPB; you see he never really loved Flora, and she never really loved him. I think she batted for the other side so to speak, and he was so grief stricken over Marjorie's betrayal that he didn't even notice. Sad, sad story


Sad indeed. Damn both Marjorie and Flora.

I don't think you can heap all the blame on poor Marjorie. Ambrose must have been hell to live with, quite apart from his physical deformity. All he ever talked about was Peanut Brittle; let's face it - it was a life of utter hell for the poor woman.

As for Flora, she wasn't around enough, she was always visting her friends Jemima and Chloe. I think had she been more understanding (and a better U-boat engineer) then Ambrose could still have been with us today.

Oh Steiner do keep up...Jemima and Chloe were, how can I say this with due attention to the delicateness(?) of the situation? They were Flora's "friends". They shared the same proclivities, if you know what I mean? They once holidayed in Greece - on the isle of Lesbos.

No they were sudeny... psudi....made up names to protect the innocent. Chloe was actually Helga, a 24-stone pig-iron smelter from Gdansk, while Jemima was Frida, originally a 6ft, professional footballer who once played for Lynn Oslo, before finding that he preferred life as a ladeeee. Flora clearly hankered after a specific type.

I must admire Flora for knowing exactly what she wanted.

Warspite1

Indeed, but whilst one may admire her strength and singleness of mind, one must recoil in horror at her actual taste. Not, you understand, that there is anything wrong in coming from Gdansk, being called Helga, having a handlebar moustache and a hairy chest; or working as a pig-iron smelter: It's just that that combination pertaining to the same lady is a tad unappealing to this particular forumite.

Yes I thought it would be - I remember the scene where you come across a load of Soviet women soldiers in Cross of Iron. Although a couple were nice looking, I suspect the majority of that platoon were ladies that Flora would wish to get to know.

Maybe I missed something from British culture of TV(the same I suppose) but who the hell are Jemima and Chloe??
Warspite1

Oh Steiner do keep up...Jemima and Chloe were, how can I say this with due attention to the delicateness(?) of the situation? They were Flora's "friends". They shared the same proclivities, if you know what I mean? They once holidayed in Greece - on the isle of Lesbos.


Oh, I misread that post. You mean Jemima and Chloe from Uttoxeter. Damn I should be more careful.
Warspite1

No they were sudeny... psudi....made up names to protect the innocent. Chloe was actually Helga, a 24-stone pig-iron smelter from Gdansk, while Jemima was Frida, originally a 6ft, professional footballer who once played for Lynn Oslo, before finding that he preferred life as a ladeeee. Flora clearly hankered after a specific type.


I must admire Flora for knowing exactly what she wanted.

Warspite1

Indeed, but whilst one may admire her strength and singleness of mind, one must recoil in horror at her actual taste. Not, you understand, that there is anything wrong in coming from Gdansk, being called Helga, having a handlebar moustache and a hairy chest; or working as a pig-iron smelter: It's just that that combination pertaining to the same lady is a tad unappealing to this particular forumite.


UUGGHH. Unappealing to me too.
Warspite1

Yes I thought it would be - I remember the scene where you come across a load of Soviet women soldiers in Cross of Iron. Although a couple were nice looking, I suspect the majority of that platoon were ladies that Flora would wish to get to know.


That scene was the only time in my long life that I was nearly unfaithful to Mrs. Steiner. Remember the Russian babe bathing?? Well that was not the temptress, for me it was the major inside the building - ooohh - NOT.
Warspite1

Don't give me that NOT business at the end - I understand the sub-text of what you are saying. For you Steiner I recommend a course of leeches. They come highly recommended by Dr Ingo Hoffman from Stuttgart - owner of the largest leech farm in Europe.


I should have know better. XD! You are all-seeing sir warspite1. XD!

You know there are those that say Ambrose is a charlatan and a con-man; that this whole peanut brittle thing was just a way of allowing Ambrose to build a nice new extension on his house.

I've been reading Franklin's 2011 expose: Ambrose, Hero or Charlatan?

In this book Franklin argues that the events Ambrose describes in history happened- not because of Peanut Brittle - Brazilian or otherwise - but because of perfectly explainable reasons e.g. he states:

Case White was ordered because Hitler was a mindless sociopath
Britney shaved off her head because she had a breakdown
Mussolini was prone to mood swings because he contracted a rather unpleasant STD in his youth
Britain did not lose an empire because of a BPB ravaged ruling class
The T-34 was made of steel
Wasa sank because - well who knows, but the point is that peanut brittle - Brazilian or otherwise was not to blame.

But he goes further. According to Franklin he argues that Peanut Brittle is not even real. Pictures - such as the one M'Colleague Orm posted the other day are nothing more than pictures of Lasagne photo-shopped to look like Peanut Brittle. In short - its all a con.

But Franklin is not finished there. He also argues that Ambrose did not exist and gives three key questions that seemingly cannot be answered by anyone:

Where is the Parish record that shows Ambrose was actually born?
Why has the remains of the Saucy Nymphe never been found?
Who the hell calls their dog socks?

Interesting......
