    Churchill was an improbable hero for what was to be called "the century of the common man", not only because he was personally so very uncommon, but because he was from an elite British family and was never closely in touch with "ordinary people" in Britain, let alone the rest of the world.

The first truly modern war, it changed how war and peace would be conducted throughout the remainder of the 20th century and even to the present.
