People all over the world will be listening to Beethoven and Mozart long after Churchill is a footnote in British history books

Yeah, I think Churchill is overrated. He wouldn't even be top 3 for most influential of World War II, I don't think.

Definitely not, and I don't even think that's really a debate. I'd put FDR, Truman, Stalin, and Hitler ahead of him right off the bat.

And arguably Mussolini, Hirohito, Tojo, Chaing Kai-shek, then there’s all the admirals and generals. He’s a top 100 orator but I wouldn’t place him in the top 100 in human history.
