One of Churchill's many famous quotes was regarding his respect for pigs.
I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
He had to order the slaughter of hundres of thousands.

This has always been one of my favourite quotes from Churchill.

Given his fondness for pigs, It must have been particularly difficult for Winston at the outset of WW2 when it was realised that Britain could not import enough animal feed to sustain the British pig population.

This was caused by the Nazi's sinking British supply ships

He must have been heartbroken to have to acquiesce to a decision that saw two thirds of the pigs slaughtered (hundreds of thousands).

The fact that the pigs had to be sacrificed in the war for the greater good is not commonly known, I came across this nugget of information whilst researching Churchill for a book I have recently published called Churchill’s Secret Skills
