Winston Churchill Pictures


“It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time.”
-Winston Churchill, 1945

Unlike many of his contemporaries, Churchill recognized the dangers of German rearmament after their defeat in the First World War. He was also a vehement opponent of Communism and remained so even throughout Britain’s alliance with the Soviet Union in World War 2.

Churchill wasn’t without his faults and he made more than his fair share of mistakes which we can look back on now and deconstruct.

He was also, however, the best politician to lead Britain through the war and without him history would have turned out much differently.

This is the second page of a collection of Winston Churchill pictures, here focusing on the latter part of Churchill’s life.
