'Churchill is the most bloodthirsty of amateur strategists that history has ever known, 'Adolf Hitler stated in a 1941 speech. 'He is as bad a politician as a soldier and as bad a soldier as a politician.' Hitler was wrong on all counts. Winston Churchill was a competent, experienced and enthusiastic soldier who served as an officer in four wars, beginning as a subaltern on India's northwest frontier and ending as a battalion commander on the Western Front in World War I and while he could not match Hitler's horrific life as a runner in the trenches for most of the war, the future British leader had experienced intense, close quarter combat first hand in many campaigns, many lands before his 25th birthday.
