With his restless temperament, wide political responsibilities, and thirst for victory, Winston Churchill did not hesitate to prod and push the Royal Navy’s admirals during the Second World War. A study of Churchill’s relationship with six of the senior naval leaders is considered in the article “Pester, Nag, and Bite! Churchill and the British Admirals of the Second World War” by the author of this blog and published in the most recent issue of the Finest Hour: The Journal of Winston Churchill and His Times (Summer 2017; No. 177).
