Winston Churchill is a strong and determined historical figure. He was born in Marlborough, England, 1874. His parents were very busy with work and their social life so Winston was with his nanny most of his childhood. His nanny supported Winston whenever his parents couldn’t and was like a mother to him.
Throughout his life he has shown determination, brightness, and had been adventurous. For example in South Africa in 1899 he was brave enough to go into a war zone. He was also shot at and became a prisoner of war for a month. He also was accepted into Harrow School, a private school when he was 12 in 1887. However, he is best known for becoming the prime minister of Great Britain. During this time the Nazis invaded France in May 10, 1940 and Chamberlain resigned as Prime Minister and that same day Churchill took that position. Winston Churchill once said, “Never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.'' From this quote we know that Winston Churchill is inspiring and determined. He did not give up no matter what happens in World War II. He was trying to inspire all the people of his country to fight back in this war. Winston Churchill displayed many character traits that led him in his journey to become a great political figure.
