Winston Churchill was perhaps the greatest statesman of the 20th century. Had he not grasped the reins of British Government and steadfastly refused to deal with Hitler, our world would certainly be a very different place today. An erudite writer and eloquent speaker, his words inspired the English People to the high road, to resist Fascism to their last breath, where others, notably Chamberlain, had desperately sought the low road of appeasement.

"We shall never surrender!"

This was truly their finest hero.  -30-
