16 Winston Churchill 16 Winston Churchill was a politician, radical, soldier, artist, and the twentieth century's most famous and celebrated British Prime Minister. … his stand against protectionism led him to join the Liberals in 1904 … in 1911 he was appointed First Lord of the Admiralty, and ensured the Navy was ready for the outbreak of war in However, he was blamed for the failed Dardanelles Campaign in 1915, and was demoted in the coalition government. …he returned to the Conservative Party in the 1920s and spent five years as Stanley Baldwin's Chancellor, but again fell out with his party. Unpopular and ostracised for a decade, his warnings from the backbenches of Fascist imperialism went unheeded. His influence, it was said, had 'fallen to zero.’ However, Chamberlain's policy of appeasement failed, leading to his resignation and the vindication of Churchill's position. George VI asked Churchill to form a government in 1940 at the age of 65. Asking the House of Commons for its confidence in his small War Cabinet, he said: "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.”

17 Winston Churchill 17 His evocative and stirring rhetoric, employed in many famed speeches, is seen as representing the spirit of wartime Britain, and was essential to raising national morale. He was renowned as a great character and a great leader but was a paradoxical man. Possessed of astonishing vision, he also made disastrous mistakes - chiefly over the First World War battle at Gallipoli. Nevertheless, he brought Britain to victory against Germany on 8 May, Following the Labour landslide in the post-war 1945 election, a surprised Churchill found himself leading the Conservative Opposition. The second Churchill administration some years later did not realise his hopes of ending the Cold War. In contrast, to the stark choices of the second world war, he found the problems facing post-war Britain elusive and intangible. Frustrated and in poor health, he resigned in 1955, aged 81. Since his death, Churchill's stature has grown. Recently he was voted 'Greatest Ever Briton' in a major BBC poll, beating the likes of Princess Diana and Charles Darwin.

18 Churchill and WW II 18 "We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind, We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask: what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory - victory - at all costs, victory, in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."
