Overview

Winston Churchill’s staunch patriotism, his bulldog tenacity and fighting will, and, above all, his towering rhetoric inspired the British people to a gallant defense of their island nation that set a new bar for national heroism and earned him a place among the pantheon of the world’s greatest leaders.
But Churchill was far from perfect. He was a hero, yes, but a human one. He could be petty, irascible, and self-centered. He relished a practical joke. But he had courage and a born politician’s sense of the public stage. And when a bulldog was precisely what England needed, he was there.
In the end, Churchill was a regal figure, his life one that not even Shakespeare could have imagined. He had inspired his people, saved them, really, from the yoke of Nazi tyranny. He had transcended politics to become the greatest statesman in his country’s long history and an inspiration to all the world. Here’s his incredible story.
