Winston Churchill Description

Winston Churchill was a skillful and determined historical figure. He was born in Great Britain in November of 1874 . He had a very rough childhood because his parents were never there for him. He was raised by his nanny but then she then died in 1895. He was transported to a boarding school when he was only eight years old. Throughout his life showed bravery, leadership, and intelligence. For example, He showed bravery and intelligence in South Africa during a war where he was shot at and taken captive. This takes both bravery and intelligence because he went to a country knowing the consequences of traveling there. He also had to come up with a plan in order to escape. Leadership was shown when he went to work on his first leave. Instead of relaxing or taking the day off, Churchill traveled to Cuba in order to know what to expect in battle. This shows that Churchill did his homework and was always ready to learn. He is best known as a leader, being that British and their allies relied on him during WWII. The speeches he gave inspired millions and gave them hope for winning the war. Winston Churchill once said, in the speech, “Never give in Never, Never, Never We were poorly armed. We are not so poorly armed today”. From this quote, we know that although the British did not succeed in every battle, they still had made an effort both mentally and physically to succeed. Winston Churchill was a man of perseverance and led the British through many adversities to succeed in winning the war.
