The British voted Churchill the greatest Briton. Why? Was he the colossus of the 20th century, or is his status a measure of Britain's nostalgic fixation on Second World War glories? Churchill took part in the last cavalry charge in British history and lived to authorise the atomic bomb. 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.
