Transcript of Winston Churchill
the significance of
during World War II
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill.
. Winston Churchill was a talented orator who delivered stirring speeches which were known to be motivational, inspiring his people to make more sacrifices towards the war
. One of his famous speeches being "We shall fight on the beaches"was delivered to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United States on 4 June 1940. During this speech, Churchill had to give warning on a great military disaster without putting the audience in doubt of ultimate victory.
I would say to the House, as I said to those who have joined this Government: "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat."
. The Grand Alliance was an alliance uniting the the Soviet Union (led by Joseph Stalin), the United States (led by Franklin Roosevelt) and Great Britain (led by Winston Churchill). In order for this alliance to form, Churchill's relationship with FDR was crucial.
Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill were often referred to as "The Big Three"
. The alliance was also known as the "Strange Alliance" as it incorporated the world's greatest capitalist state, the greatest communist state and the greatest colonial power
Ultimately The Grand Alliance was essential for the defeat of Nazi Germany
Winston Churchill (1874-1965) served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during the periods of 1940-1945 and again from 1951-1955. As well as being a British politician, Churchill was an officer in the British Army, historian, writer, artist and was well regarded as one of the greatest wartime leader of the 20th Century.
