Born: 30 November 1874

Died: 24 January 1965 (aged 90)

As prime minister, Sir Winston Churchill rallied the British people during WWII, and led his country from the brink of defeat to victory. There is little doubt that Winston Churchill was a political figure of enormous influence and importance. His record, both before 1939 and after 1945, was for the most part undistinguished. But as Anthony Storr writes: "In 1940 Churchill became the hero that he had always dreamed of being.… In that dark time, what England needed was not a shrewd, equable, balanced leader. She needed a prophet, a heroic visionary, a man who could dream dreams of victory when all seemed lost. Winston Churchill was such a man."
