The decade of the 1930s is renowned for its leaders: Hitler, Stalin, F.D. Roosevelt and—Joe Lyons. It can be argued that at a time of crisis a country throws up a leader who is emblematic of the quality of its national character. It can also be said that the leaders who are best remembered are those who create the most effective public image, and who leave behind a positive picture of themselves in the public mind.
