The life of Winston Spencer-Churchill has received considerable attention during the sixty years he has spent on the political scene. More than forty biographies have been written about this leader of Britian; he has been the subject of hundreads of newspapers and magazine articles; his speeches have been gathered into sixteen volumes, and he himself has produced twenty-nine volumes. Despite this vast output of Churchillians, there has been no attempt to produce a definitive analysis of the psychological aspects of this world figure. This study was undertaken in an attempt to further a knowledge of Churchill in this area. We must disagree with the biographer who stated: "Winston Churchill will disappoint the seekers after human mysteries. It is the weak and confused characters who provide the greater psychological interest, for the strength end resolution of Churchill's personality furthered rather than prevented this writer's interest in the subject.
