TIME Magazine Wrong In Not Naming Churchill

The choice of Einstein as TIME’s Person of the Century, whilst understandable, is an error of judgement to many students of twentieth century history.

The person who most clearly affected the way the Western world lives today was Winston Churchill.

The Weekly Standard, in its latest edition, presents a compelling case for Churchill, arguing against the choice of Roosevelt, Hitler, Stalin, Lenin or Mao.

A new book by John Lukas, “Five Days In London – May 1940”, available here from Amazon Books, argues that in the weeks after becoming Prime Minister Churchill prevailed upon the War Cabinet to continue the fight against Hitler and, in so doing, earned his place as the greatest democratic statesman of the century.
