  1. I agree with you. In fact even for D-day whilst Eisenhower represented the American military leadership, Churchill pretty much represented the British. Having said that, he did win the wsr despite Germany’s superior naval and aerial resources.

    • As a boy I always remember my elders talking about “Mr” Churchill, and how he “won” the war. I disagreed then, as I disagree now. Churchill did not win the war. Politicians don’t win wars, soldiers, sailors and airmen do! If Hitler had paid more attention to his general staff, the outcome of the war may have been totally different.
