Explore the remarkable and iconic background of Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill

Sir Winston Churchill has become a symbol of our national pride and patriotism, as quintessentially British as the bulldog or the Union Jack. He is known as much for his words as for his actions during World War II. The steadfast power of his oratory gave wings to the morale of the nation during its darkest hours. Today, Churchill’s legacy lives on. In 2002, he topped a BBC poll of the 100 Greatest Britons, ahead of Shakespeare, Brunel and Newton.
