The historical reputation of Sir Winston Churchill is under assault today as never before: His statues are vandalized, British politicians have denounced him as a “villain,” and a recent conference at Churchill College, Cambridge—of all places—has branded him as evil as Adolf Hitler. Award-winning historian Andrew Roberts, author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny, vigorously takes issue with Churchill’s detractors.

Andrew Roberts is Distinguished Lehrman Fellow at the New-York Historical Society. His newest book is The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George IIIPhilip Bobbitt (moderator) is a leading constitutional scholar and Herbert Wechsler Professor of Federal Jurisprudence at Columbia Law School.
