Winston Churchill did not suffer from depression and his reference to the “black dog” has been misinterpreted for decades, according to a historian of the wartime leader.
Andrew Roberts said the phrase “black dog” had a different meaning at the beginning of the 20th century and did not refer to mental health.
“He could get down on occasion but I do not believe that he was a depressive,” Roberts said.
