Churchill, Henry V and Napoleon? Overrated, says BBC History magazine

Also among the most overrated people in history, according to the magazine, are Charles Darwin, Spartacus and Malcolm X

They may be among the most famous figures from history, but the likes of Winston Churchill, Henry V and Napoleon Bonaparte don't hack it so far as some British historians are concerned. Poor old Charles Darwin doesn't figure any better either.
