    Moshe Arens adds his name to the long list of those who love to refer to Churchill. But first he should get his history straight. Churchill was not exiled after Gallipoli for several years - he was back in the government within 2 years, as Minister for Supply (July 1917). It was NOT Gallipoli that turned him against the Normandy landings - but his fear of another Dunkirk (1940); simply put, after German defeats of the British army in Spring 1941 (in Libya and Greece), Churchill lost his confidence in the ability of the British Tommy to stand up to the Wehrmacht.
