According to Henry Kissinger,
"Our age finds it difficult to come to grips with Churchill. The political leaders with whom we are familiar generally aspire to be superstars rather than heroes. The distinction is crucial. Superstars strive for approbation; heroes walk alone. Superstars crave consensus; heroes define themselves by the judgment of a future they see it as their task to bring about. Superstars seek success in a technique for soliciting support; heroes pursue success as the outgrowth of their inner values."
In this incisive look at his leadership in action we see what it was that enabled Churchill to do what few others have ever accomplished in the long annals of history: stand for principle and prevail.
