The people's Winston is a mass of contradictions: the saviour of his country in 1940; a defender of a declining Empire; a radical liberal; a reactionary conservative. He epitomised Britain's confused identity in the modern world, her triumphs and her decline. We will consider whether Churchill really is 'the greatest Briton'.
