What was Winston churchill skills?

Winston Churchill was a political maverick, very arrogant in his own opinions. But, as a prime minister, Churchill had two important gifts. The first was language. This came in handy during a time of devastation: World War II. He spoke extraordinarily courageous words and gave the British public confidence in their country that Britain would win the war. An example of this is his first speech as a prime minister in May of 1940, right before the Battle of Britain (Germany's massive air raid on Britain that deserves a whole other story on its own). Churchill said, "You ask what is our policy. I will say, it is to wage war with all our might, with all the strength that God can give us, to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime." The second gift he had was personal diplomacy. He had built a valuable friendship with the American President Franklin D. Roosevelt and was able to convince him to break American neutrality and send massive amounts of aid and weapons to Britain free of charge (the Lend-Lease). Another example of this diplomacy was his allowing Labor politicians to take positions of genuine power. In such a way, the political system was directly in touch with the working class (represented by the Labor politicians).
