Oh this delicious war!’ joyously exclaimed Winston Churchill, though historians will argue that he was not a war lover. Let them try to explain the following:

            ‘Everything tends towards catastrophe and collapse. I am interested, geared up and happy. Is it not horrible to be made like this?’  Thus did the so called ‘great man’ condemn himself with his own words in a letter to his wife on the approach of WWI. He was also recorded as saying: ‘I think a curse should rest on me, because I love this war. I know it’s smashing and shattering the lives of thousands every moment – and yet I can’t help it – I enjoy every second of it.’
