Churchill wasn't an utter saint?????
I think most people know that. He did have some virtues though.
Could I gently suggest that you might possibly lack a sense of proportion?
From the article:-Probably not an uncommon view for a posh English man born in the 1870's. Superiority and justification through paternalism. It's the fact that he didn't then go on to systematically kill 6 million Jews (or other groups) that makes your assertion that "you realise that he wasn't so very far away from his vaunted enemy" lack a sense of proportion.
It's actually quite a long way away from his vaunted enemy. I'd go as far as to say he wasn't very close to being Hitler at all to be honest.
