'John Curtin was perhaps the most significant of Australian Prime Ministers.  This judgment may be influenced, like judgments of Churchill, because Curtin was Prime minister at a most crucial time in his country's history.  But it does appear that Curtin had control of his Party, and of his country, to a degree that had not been equalled by any other Prime Minister.'
