Overview
-

Voted Britain’s Greatest Briton, Winston Churchill had an unparalleled impact upon the course of the twentieth century, leading the Allies to eventual victory in World War Two. But his life was not always one of success and popularity. Following capture and daring escape in the Boer War, he suffered the ignominy of failure to gain a parliamentary seat and, when finally elected, struggled as chancellor of the exchequer, and resigned following the Dardanelles disaster in World War One. At times he was left in the political wilderness. But true to his motto “never give in”, Churchill took charge of his country to lead it through its darkest hour. This special publication reflects on the life of a giant, from beginning to end, and focusses on his greatest achievements, the failures, and his legacies.
