Winston Churchill

A man of many words.

He was a politician, a historian, a writer, a statesman, a journalist, a soldier, an orator and an artist. He was the only British Prime Minister to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, he appeared on stamps in both Canada and the US, and he was Time magazine’s “Man of the Year” in both 1940 and 1949. In a recent BBC poll, he was voted the greatest Briton of all time. Winston Churchill was remarkable in many ways.

Churchill had a life of adventure. He fought in wars, he worked as a reporter on dangerous assignments and he led his country in her darkest hours, but above all he had a way with words. Churchill’s speeches during World War II were a crucial part of the war effort. They played a vital role in keeping Allied spirits high. One of his most famous was given just before the Battle of Britain in 1940, part of which included this extract, “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender”.

And his description of the battle has become world famous, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” Churchill could put things in a catchy, memorable way.
