Winston Churchill was authentic, as much as any figure in world history may claim. He always spoke his mind, and from the heart. My favorite Churchill quote was his humorous poke at the strongest of his Allies: "Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing … after they have exhausted all other possibilities." Churchill had earlier vented his frustratration about how long it took the US to join WWII; that was 27 months after it began on Sep 3, 1939. For the sake of the free world, Churchill was right ... it was nearly too late.
