The War Lords

Episode 3: Winston Churchill

Duration: 29 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One WestLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Scotland

AJP Taylor tells the story of Winston Churchill's wartime career, and analyses his character and achievements. He is controversially outspoken about some of Churchill's failings: 'I suppose his greatest mistake was his refusal to take the dangers in the Far East seriously'. Taylor is equally frank in his assessments of Churchill's heroic successes: 'There have been two great war heroes in our history - Nelson and Wellington. Both in their different ways were the saviours of their country. Churchill will be added unto them'. Show less
