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.

Bernard Law Montgomery was born on November 17, 1887 in London, England. In August of 1942, Winston Churchill appointed him commander of the British 8th Army in North Africa where “Monty” forced Erwin Rommel to retreat after the Battle of El-Alamein.

He also reviewed the plan for the Normandy Invasion and commanded all ground forces in the initial stages of the invasion. After the war, Montgomery was made commander of the British occupation forces and served on the Allied Control Council.

In 1946, he was elevated to Viscount Montgomery of Alamein for his accomplishments. Serving as Chief of the Imperial General Staff from 1946 to 1948, he struggled with the political aspects of the post. Beginning in 1951, he served as deputy commander of NATO's European forces and remained in that position until his retirement in 1958.

Increasingly known for his outspoken views on a variety of topics, his postwar memoirs were severely critical of his contemporaries. Montgomery died on March 24, 1976, and was buried at Binsted.

A highly decorated officer during World War I, Admiral Andrew Cunningham quickly moved through the ranks and was named Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Navy's Mediterranean Fleet in June 1939. In November 1940, aircraft from his carriers conducted a successful night raid on the Italian fleet at Taranto and the following March defeated them at Cape Matapan.

After aiding in the evacuation of Crete, Cunningham led the naval elements of the North Africa landings and the invasions of Sicily and Italy. In October 1943, he was made First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff in London.
