Umbrella Man

Sometimes, the more you learn about a famous person, particularly if you get to glimpse something of their private character and feelings, the harder it is not to sympathize with them on some basic human level, regardless of what you might think of what they did. Neville Chamberlain is not one of those people. The more you learn about the private man, the harder it is to find anything to like about him at all.
