Winston Churchill's About

[]

Winston Churchill was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. A multi-faceted man, he was also an officer in the British Army, a writer and a historian. As a young army man he witnessed action in the Anglo“Sudan War and the Second Boer War, and received much praise for his work as a war correspondent. Born as the son of a prominent politician hailing from an aristocratic family, he grew up to be a rebellious boy who hated formal education and did poorly in school. As a young man he embarked on a military career and visited several countries including India, Cuba and Egypt where he witnessed bloody battles and was even imprisoned. He served as both soldier and journalist, and was greatly appreciated for his work as a war correspondent. Eventually he left the army and ventured into politics where he enjoyed even greater success. Intelligent and charismatic, he proved to be a popular politician and held many political and cabinet positions. He became the Prime Minister during a highly tumultuous period in history when the World War II was in full swing. He managed the political affairs with great tact and successfully led Britain as Prime Minister until victory over Nazi Germany had been secured. In recognition of all that he had done for the nation, he is widely counted amongst the most influential people in British history.
