Still reading Churchill's The Hinge of Fate, book IV of V in his series on WWII. I'm starting to get a better sense of the manner in which he spins the unfolding of events to his favor. Even when he clearly screwed up, as in failing to predict losing Singapore, he explains why it wasn't really his fault.

He was obviously a very intelligent and capable leader, but he never really owns a failure.
