It is only as you get older that you realise what an amazing man Churchill was. Everyone has heard of him and most people know what he did for the country. I recently published a book called What Would Churchill Do? - which analyses the way Churchill managed the war and applies the lessons to modern business. Whilst on a recent book tour I came across a number of people who didn't like him, and lots of kids who didn't know who he was, they will eventually. He is one of the great figures of world history and will never be forgotten. It was only after writing my book that I understood what an amazing man he was and how he managed to help Britain and the allies outwit Hitler. He was a unique man. The book is on Amazon.
