Winston Churchill Photos


“Never give in — never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.
Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
-Winston Churchill, 1941

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill – there seldom comes a man who leads a more adventurous, historic, and altogether monumental life.

From his early years as a newspaper reporter to his second spell as British Prime Minister, Churchill was always “out there”, always standing fast, pushing forward, and never surrendering.

This is the first page of a two-page collection of Winston Churchill photos, featuring mostly portraits and pictures of Churchill in his earlier days.
