New Module: Churchill as Strategist in World War Two

We have added another new higher education teaching module to our collection. The teaching modules on the site are essays specially written by experts and designed to help lecturers structure teaching on these subjects. They include many useful links to resources outside the site and primary documents within the Archive.

Churchill as Strategist in World War Two by Jeremy Black, Chair of History at the University of Exeter.
Churchill’s reputation as war leader is less secure in strategy and policy than in politics and polemic, and notably in the United States where Britain’s wartime strategy is frequently criticized. He had a difficult hand to play, not least because of the views of the United States and the Soviet Union, but sought to advance national interests and to protect the Empire, and did so with much greater success than could have been anticipated in 1941, let alone 1940.
