PERSONALITY OF THE CENTURY

As we go to press, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu writes in the May 10th Time: "It is one of the 20th century's ironies that the most poignant tribute to Winston Churchill came from one of the most repugnant tyrants of our time. Toasting the British leader at Yalta in February 1945, Joseph Stalin said, 'I can think of no other instance in history where the future of the world depended on the courage of one man.' Without that one man, whose abhorrence of tyranny was matched by his contempt for its appeasers, the second half of the century would have become a Nazi-dominated nightmare. That the world witnessed instead the triumph of democracy, the defeat of totalitarianism (including the downfall of Stalin's own empire) and the emergence of new nations—not least the rebirth of Israel—must be attributed to Churchill's indomitable leadership and prophetic vision."

RIDDLES: RESIDENCES AND CAMPAIGNS LISTS IN FH 103...

Last issue we committed two errors in naming Churchill's London residences. (11 Morpeth Mansions not 12, and Number 11 does carry the blue plaque.) Thanks to Lady Soames's Speaking for Themselves, we have a much more complete list of residences. And from Ronald Cohen we have a complete list of Churchill's campaign record (16 wins, 5 losses)—but both will have to wait. We're out of room!
