Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill

London, England

I learned about Sir Winston Churchill in my World History textbooks while studying in American high school. He was probably best known as a British politician, noted for his leadership during World War II. He served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, and 1951 to 1955. Aside from his political prowess, Churchill was also a noted orator, soldier, historian, Nobel Prize winning author and artist. His five days in London (May 1940) are essential reading for anyone studying Western Europe. (ISBN 978-0300084665)
