[W]e are just as much a dictator country as either Germany or Italy and one day the British public will wake up and ask what we are fighting for.
— Vice-Admiral Sir James Somerville, in a letter to his wife dated January 5, 1941. Somerville, like most senior Royal Navy officers, greatly disliked and distrusted Churchill, and resented his interference with military operations.
