Certainly Churchill had no doubt of his own contribution to military thought. ' He was, of course, subjective in his assessment of people, and the main reason for his failure to establish a close relationship with Wavell was because Wavell was so unforthcoming. I was present at Chequers when Lord Rosebery, who was a close friend of Wavell, brought him to luncheon for the first time. Churchill tried his hardest to elicit the General's views and was met with the silence of shyness.

It was these changes of circumstance, and not any loss of mental or physical vigour on the part of Churchill, that led to lost opportunities in the concluding phases of the warespecially perhaps at the Allied Conferences at Yalta and at Potsdam.
