Winston Churchill is one of the most biographed figures in modern history, held up as an orator and wartime strategist that turned the tide against Hitler and Nazi Germany.

But how accurate is this image? And is it hiding a darker reality?

Middle East Eye sits down with British-Pakistani writer, political activist and public intellectual Tariq Ali.

Tariq published a biography titled Winston Churchill: His Times, His Crimes. In it, Ali paints a different portrait – one of a self-obsessed, ruthless and deeply racist colonial leader, who lost little sleep over his crushing attempts to maintain Britain’s rule. In particular, Churchill’s actions in Ireland, Kenya and Bangladesh led to some of the most horrific atrocities of the 20th Century.
