Sir Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill was born into the privileged world of the British aristocratic family of the Dukes of Marlborough, on 30th November 1874 at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

Churchill was at the forefront of politics for fifty years; he held many political and cabinet positions. Before the First World War he served as President of the Board of Trade. Home Secretary and First Lord of the Admiralty as part of Asquith's Liberal goverment. During the war he continued as First Lord of the Admiralty until the disastrous Gallipoli Campaign caused his departure from government.

During the 1930s he was out of office and politically 'in the wilderness'. He took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany and in campaigning for rearmament. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was again appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. Following the resignation of Neville Chamberlain on 10th May 1940, Churchill became Prime Minister. His steadfast refusal to consider defeat, surrender, or a compromise peace encouraged British resistance, especially during the difficult early days of the war when the British Commonwealth and Empire stood alone in its active opposition to Adolf Hitler.
