Winston Churchill is one of the best-known, and perhaps the greatest, statesmen of the 20th century. Though he was born into a life of privilege, he dedicated himself to public service.

His legacy is a complicated one–he was an idealist and a pragmatist; an orator and a soldier; an advocate of progressive social reforms and an unapologetic elitist; a defender of democracy as well as of Britain’s fading empire–but for many people in Great Britain and elsewhere, Winston Churchill is simply a hero.

In 1951, 77-year-old Winston Churchill became prime minister for the second time. He spent most of this term working, unsuccessfully, to build a sustainable détente between the East and the West. He retired from the post in 1955. In 1953, Queen Elizabeth made Winston Churchill a knight of the Order of the Garter. He died in 1965, one year after retiring from Parliament.

By the summer of 1940, the Führer stood at the pinnacle of world power. Feared by most, admired by many, and absolutely worshiped by his own people, he thought himself to be invincible. Upon his return to Berlin after his conquest of France, he enjoyed an outpouring of popular delirium unprecedented in German history.

Every European leader thus far challenged by Adolf Hitler had either backed down or been conquered, except one, Winston Churchill. For Hitler, the greater the success, the more he came to see himself as an infallible genius, compounded by the notion that if he, the Führer, spoke a word, then it would come to pass.

His megalomania would eventually lead to his downfall. Bit by bit, it would become his worst enemy, clouding his judgment as he went forward, prompting him to act rashly, providing opportunities for his opponents they would not miss.
