Quote from Kyt from another thread to provide context for my question. I have always thought that it was the height of ingratitude and huge slap in the face of Winston Churchill to be turned out of office in May of 1945, following the cessation of fighting in Europe, but while Japan still sat undefeated. To me, Churchill was THE man to lead Great Britain and his leadership ability was second to none. He appeared to be a lone voice before the war trying to alert the world to what was unfolding in Central Europe and was mostly ignored. He was then called upon to lead the nation as the crisis was drawing closer and he met the challenge tremendously, only to cast aside when no longer needed. Why was he disabused in the manner that he was following the nation's triumph, with him at the helm? Where I am wrong with this line of thought?
