Churchill didn't fight alone

Reader comment on item: Instant Retribution in the Middle East
in response to reader comment: If Churchill were on the scene today....

Churchill didn't fight the war by himself. Millions of people drawn from the colonies fought in the war in the misguided belief that they would be free from the jackboot of Imperial Britain, just as two-thirds of the French Free Army was made up of North and West African and mainly Muslim soldiers. Whilst half of France resisted under the leadership of De Galle, the other half made peace with the Nazis and set up the Vichy government. Had it not been for these North and West African troops, France would have remained occupied by the Third Reich.

His country believed in him so much, that they voted Churchill out of office! The legacy of Churchill is a modern myth! Don't be such a sheep.
