The one moment in history that redeemed Churchill of all his flaws was the Second World War. Through awe-inspiring speeches and a fiery spirit to win, Churchill wiped away his unpopularity, saving himself from the disgrace accorded to Hitler and Stalin.
Churchill is widely posited as the champion of democracy - the man who stopped the advance of Hitler and the Nazis. Some, however, call him the man directly responsible for the Bengal Famine that took the lives of 3 to 4 million people.
The original printed note by Churchill as First Lord of the Admiralty 'The Channel Tunnel document' discusses the feasibility of building a tunnel and considers the risks posed if France were to become England's enemy in 1914.
