To better understand half-American Winston Churchill it is best to keep in mind that foremost the World War II warlord was an opportunist. A political chameleon, he changed sides of the House more times than he changed his women’s silk knickers, which he adored. It would be difficult to find anyone outside Hitler’s Germany to heap more praise on Adolf Hitler did. Winston Churchill had no problems changing his political rhetoric as the audience and opportunity required.

In 1929, Winston Churchill gave an estimate of Emperor Nicholas II, which, though not uncritical, is a much fairer one than that customarily given by Western historiography.

They are among the most pithy and powerful English words in defence of Nicholas’ character, in part because Churchill does not depend upon the ‘well he was a good husband and father’ strategy. He also addresses some of the questions that still exist in Russia today. Many voices remain critical of Nicholas II refusal to democratise (although he did create the Duma), herewith is Winston Churchill’s verdict:

‘It is the shallow fashion of these times to dismiss the Tsarist regime as a purblind, corrupt, incompetent tyranny. But a survey of its thirty months’ war with Germany and Austria should correct these loose impressions and expose the dominant facts.

We may measure the strength of the Russian Empire by the battering it had endured, by the disasters it had survived, by the inexhaustible forces it had developed, and by the recovery it had made. In the governments of states, when great events are afoot, the leader of the nation, whoever he be, is held accountable for failure and vindicated by success. No matter who wrought the toil, who planned the struggle, to the supreme responsible authority belongs the blame or credit.

‘Why should this stern test be denied to Nicholas II? He had made many mistakes, what ruler has not? He was neither a great captain nor a great prince. He was only a true, simple man of average ability, of merciful disposition, upheld in all his daily life by his faith in God. But the brunt of supreme decisions centred upon him. At the summit where all problems are reduced to Yea or Nay, where events transcend the faculties of man and where all is inscrutable, he had to give the answers.

His was the function of the compass needle, war or no war? To advance or retreat? Right or left? Democratise or hold firm? Quit or persevere?

These were the battlefields of Nicholas II. Why should he reap no honour from them? The devoted onset of the Russian armies which saved Paris in 1914; the mastered agony of the munitionless retreat; the slowly re-gathered forces; the victories of Brusilov; the Russian entry upon the campaign of 1917, unconquered, stronger than ever; has he no share in these? In spite of errors vast and terrible, the regime he personified, over which he presided, to which his personal character gave the vital spark, had at this moment won the war for Russia.

‘He is about to be struck down. A dark hand, gloved at first in folly, now intervenes. Exit Tsar. Deliver him and all he loved to wounds and death. Belittle his efforts, asperse his conduct, insult his memory; but pause then to tell us who else were found capable.

Who or what could guide the Russian State? Men gifted and daring; men ambitious and fierce, spirits audacious and commanding, of these there were no lack. But none could answer the few plain questions on which the life and fame of Russia turned’.

  1. Churchill was not only half American, he was a jew. His mother was a very attractive jewish rich girl who lived a very ¨happy¨ life, so much so, that she had the reputation of being the Victorian Matress. Sir Randolph´s cold attitude toward young Winston is said to have been the result of Winston not having been his son but rather the result of his mother´s many amours. Who knows, I am no moralist, God forbid and also no one has the luxury of determining as what, or who or where one is born or conceived. But that ladie´s underwear thing is a bit strange —-

    • When during a session of BBC Television’s University Challenge the quiz programme’s host, Jeremy Paxman, asked, ‘Which statesman during the 1920s found he was in debt because he liked to buy women’s pink silk pantaloons’. The normally erudite students were stumped for an answer. There was considerable consternation when Paxman revealed that the culprit was none other than Winston Churchill.
      Keith Moss, a member of the International Churchill Society ‘gasped at any suggestion that his idol could have been a fetishist.’ Historian Kenneth Rose said that it might have been a reference to Churchill investing in firms that made women’s clothing, in which case the question was perhaps indelicate. Both pundits might have been better informed by referring to the book, Winston Churchill, as I Knew Him, authored by Violet Bonham Carter. In her biography, she concedes that ‘Churchill’s pale pink underclothes were made in very finely woven silk.’ She added that he spent something like £80 on each pair. The average man’s wage in 1935 was £1.10 pence for a 50 hour week. Questioned, by Miss Bonham Carter, Churchill had replied that the ‘garments were essential to my well-being. ‘The delicate skin on one small part of my anatomy demanded the finest covering.’
