"Winston Churchill is perhaps the most important political figure of the twentieth century.

In his years in the political wilderness from 1931 to 1939, he alone of all British public men, continually raised his voice against Hitler and his appeasers.

It was, however, his obduracy on matters of principle, his fortitude in the face of opposition, and his perseverance in standing alone that defined him"--Container.
