  • "My God how tired I am of working for him."
  • "I often doubt whether I am going mad or whether he is really sane."
  • "He has lost all balance and is in a very dangerous mood."
  • "I feel like a man chained to the chariot of a lunatic!"
- The above remarks are by General Alan Brooke, chief of the Imperial General Staff during World War II. He was referring to Winston Churchill.

They are cited in Churchill & Orwell by Thomas E. Ricks.
