Winston Churchill’s Manchester

Was Winston Churchill the greatest Englishman of the 20th century or was he an egomaniac who should be vilified for using poison gas on the Iraqis? Was he the champion of democracy and decency, the main bulwark against the Nazi psychopaths, or simply a reactionary who opposed giving women the vote and once blushed at the sight of a woman MP in Parliament?

Winston Churchill, whatever his faults, was the main force behind the allied victory of 1945.

Manchester, briefly, was his city, his realm, his England. We revisit his haunts and habitats.
