[27], Possibly because of the extra strain, Churchill suffered a serious stroke on the evening of 23 June 1953. [208] Elsewhere, he was responsible for reducing the cost of occupying the Middle East,[206] and was involved in the installations of Faisal I of Iraq and his brother Abdullah I of Jordan. [16] His father died in January 1895, soon after Churchill finished at Sandhurst. [400][401] Although the Conservative Party was unpopular, many electors appear to have wanted Churchill to continue as Prime Minister whatever the outcome, or to have wrongly believed that this would be possible. That this House desire to take this opportunity of marking the forthcoming retirement of the right honourable Gentleman the Member for Woodford by putting on record its unbounded admiration and gratitude for his services to Parliament, to the nation and to the world; remembers, above all, his inspiration of the British people when they stood alone, and his leadership until victory was won; and offers its grateful thanks to the right honourable Gentleman for these outstanding services to this House and to the nation. [229], In the 1929 general election, Churchill retained his Epping seat but the Conservatives were defeated and MacDonald formed his second Labour government. [394][395] To Clementine's suggestion that election defeat might be "a blessing in disguise", Churchill retorted: "At the moment it seems very effectively disguised". Winston Churchill - Winston Churchill - During World War I: War came as no surprise to Churchill. Churchill was unopposed by the major parties in Woodford, but his majority over a sole independent candidate was much less than expected. Winston Churchill (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) is one of the most fascinating characters in world history. [340], Churchill had returned to Washington on 17 June. [304] The Wehrmacht occupied Paris on the 14th and completed their conquest of France on 25 June. [202], In the Irish War of Independence, he supported the use of the para-military Black and Tans to combat Irish revolutionaries. [156] Some Liberals objected to his levels of naval expenditure; in December 1913 he threatened to resign if his proposal for four new battleships in 1914–15 was rejected. He had a lateral lisp and was unable to pronounce the letter s, verbalising it with a slur. [106] In Cabinet, he worked with David Lloyd George to champion social reform. He joined the British Army in 1895 and saw action in British India, the Anglo-Sudan War, and the Second Boer War, gaining fame as a war correspondent and writing books about his campaigns. By the time of the 1959 general election, he seldom attended at all. [508][509] During an interview in 1902, while discussing his views on the Chinese, Churchill stated that the "great barbaric nations" would "menace civilised nations", but "the Aryan stock is bound to triumph". [234], Hoping that the Labour government could be ousted, he gained Baldwin's approval to work towards establishing a Conservative-Liberal coalition, although many Liberals were reticent. [323] Churchill went to Washington later in the month to meet Roosevelt for the first Washington Conference (codename Arcadia). Roosevelt had appointed General Dwight D. Eisenhower as commanding officer of the European Theater of Operations, United States Army (ETOUSA). [442] Afterwards, the coffin was taken by boat along the River Thames to Waterloo Station and from there by a special train to the family plot at St Martin's Church, Bladon, near his birthplace at Blenheim Palace. [44] At the latter, Churchill became annoyed about friction between Eden and Dulles over US actions in Guatemala. [520] On 15 September 1922, the Churchills' last child, Mary, was born. He used either "Winston S. Churchill" or "Winston Spencer Churchill" as his pen name to avoid confusion with the American novelist of the same name, with whom he struck up a friendly correspondence. Violet was distraught to find herself, as she saw it, jilted, and she refused to go to Winston’s wedding. Churchill died on 24 January 1965 and was granted the honour of a state funeral. Three days later came the joint declaration of war by Germany and Italy against the United States. [291], Churchill was the most important of the Allied leaders during the first half of World War II. [65], In February 1901, Churchill took his seat in the House of Commons, where his maiden speech gained widespread press coverage. He then retired from Parliament in 1964. [24] Some of Churchill's colleagues hoped that he might retire after her Coronation in June 1953 but, in response to Eden's illness, Churchill decided to increase his own responsibilities by taking over at the Foreign Office. Churchill, learning that the troops were already travelling, allowed them to go as far as Swindon and Cardiff, but blocked their deployment; he was concerned that the use of troops could lead to bloodshed. [117] The government called the January 1910 general election, which resulted in a narrow Liberal victory; Churchill retained his seat at Dundee. [442], Planning for Churchill's funeral had begun in 1953 under the code-name of "Operation Hope Not" and a detailed plan had been produced by 1958. He declared: "Let Europe arise", but he was "absolutely clear" that "we shall allow no wedge to be driven between Britain and the United States". After the war, Clark still agreed that Churchill's analysis was correct but he added that, when the Allies landed at Salerno, they found that Italy was "a tough old gut". In April, the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, including the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), began its assault at Gallipoli. Churchill. It was also attended by General Charles de Gaulle on behalf of the Free French Forces. [160] Later, following a Cabinet decision, he boosted the naval presence in Ireland to deal with any Unionist uprising. Churchill supported giving women the vote, but he would only back a bill to that effect if it had majority support from the (male) electorate. [329] In the Far East, the news was much worse with Japanese advances in all theatres, especially at sea and in Malaya. [266] This was to no avail as, in September, Germany mobilised to invade the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia. In time, he turned the impediment into an asset and could use it to great effect, as when he called Hitler a "Nar-zee" (rhymes with "khazi"; emphasis on the "z"), rather than a Nazi ("ts"). [319], Hitler launched his invasion of the Soviet Union on Sunday, 22 June 1941. [452] The United States Navy honoured him in 1999 by naming a new Arleigh Burke-class destroyer as the USS Winston S. Churchill was especially taken by the Mulberry project but he was also keen to make the most of Allied air power which, by the beginning of 1944, had become overwhelming. He stood again as one of the Conservative candidates at Oldham in the October 1900 general election, securing a narrow victory to become a Member of Parliament at age 25. Although they got along quite well together on a personal level, there was little chance of any real progress given the state of the war with the Germans still advancing in all theatres. [39], After Stalin's death on 5 March 1953, Churchill proposed a summit meeting with the Soviets but Eisenhower refused out of fear that the Soviets would use it for propaganda. [444], In June 1962, when he was 87, Churchill had a fall in Monte Carlo and broke his hip. [55] On 9 February 1965, Churchill's estate was probated at £304,044 (equivalent to £5,930,235 in 2019) of which £194,951 (equivalent to £3,802,428 in 2019) was left following payment of death duties. [507][508][503] He advocated against black or indigenous self-rule in Africa, Australia, the Caribbean, the Americas and India, believing that British imperialism in its colonies was for the good of the "primitive" and "subject races". [373][374], On the nights of 13–15 February 1945, some 1,200 British and US bombers attacked the German city of Dresden, which was crowded with wounded and refugees from the Eastern Front. [230] Out of office, Churchill was prone to depression (his "black dog") as he sensed his political talents being wasted and time passing him by – in all such times, writing provided the antidote. He had fully recovered by November. In the middle of this speech, he made a statement that created a famous nickname for the RAF fighter pilots involved in the battle:[311][312]. [476] He was, according to Jenkins, "singularly lacking in inhibition or concealment". Originally planned for the spring of 1942, it was finally launched in November 1942 when the crucial Second Battle of El Alamein was already underway. Instead he sent 270 London police, who were not equipped with firearms, to assist their Welsh counterparts. [216] A Labour government led by Ramsay MacDonald took power. He eventually made it to safety in Portuguese East Africa. [228] In early 1927, Churchill visited Rome where he met Mussolini, whom he praised for his stand against Leninism. [175] Churchill pleaded his case with both Asquith and Conservative leader Bonar Law, but had to accept demotion and became Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. Between themselves, they reached agreement on the Morgenthau Plan for the Allied occupation of Germany after the war, the intention of which was not only to demilitarise but also de-industrialise Germany. [474][475] On the other hand, he was deemed to be an honest politician who displayed particular loyalty to his family and close friends. Everyone, man or woman, has done their best. Until November, the Allies had always been on the defensive, but from November, the Germans were. That is our policy. Churchill traded the literary rights to his books in return for double the salary he made as Prime Minister. [301] Churchill himself referred to "a miracle of deliverance" in his "we shall fight on the beaches" speech to the Commons that afternoon, though he shortly reminded everyone that: "We must be very careful not to assign to this deliverance the attributes of a victory. Within the same speech, he called for "a special relationship between the British Commonwealth and Empire and the United States",[405] but he emphasised the need for co-operation within the framework of the United Nations Charter. Churchill insisted that he did not need bed rest and, two days later, journeyed on to Ottawa by train where he gave a speech to the Canadian Parliament that included the "some chicken, some neck" line in which he recalled French predictions in 1940 that "Britain alone would have her neck wrung like a chicken". Winston Churchill formal schooling did not begin until he was 8 years old He went to harrow school in 1886 when he was 12 years old as the lowest boy in the lowest class. After his retirement as prime minister, he remained in Parliament until 1964, the year before his death. [80], In December 1905, Balfour resigned as Prime Minister and King Edward VII invited the Liberal leader Henry Campbell-Bannerman to take his place. Churchill believed that Eisenhower did not fully comprehend the danger posed by the H-bomb and he greatly distrusted Eisenhower's Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles. The matter had already been discussed at a meeting on the 9th between Chamberlain, Halifax, Churchill, and David Margesson, the government Chief Whip. [292], At the end of May, with the British Expeditionary Force in retreat to Dunkirk and the Fall of France seemingly imminent, Halifax proposed that the government should explore the possibility of a negotiated peace settlement using the still-neutral Mussolini as an intermediary. [51] Afterwards, the coffin was taken by boat along the River Thames to Waterloo Station and from there by a special train to the family plot at St Martin's Church, Bladon, near his birthplace at Blenheim Palace. [274] There were disagreements about mining, both in the war cabinet and with the French government. Asquith. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. [514] They remained married for 57 years. [411], Labour won the 1950 general election, but with a much-reduced majority. [140] Although he faced criticism for his decision, he stated that he "thought it better to let the house burn down rather than spend good British lives in rescuing those ferocious rascals". These ministerial merits are not as common as might be thought". [43], On 2 December 1898, Churchill embarked for India to settle his military business and complete his resignation from the 4th Hussars. It was widely expected that he would retire after her Coronation in May 1953 but, after Eden became seriously ill, Churchill increased his own responsibilities by taking over at the Foreign Office. [223] In April 1925, he controversially albeit reluctantly restored the gold standard in his first budget at its 1914 parity against the advice of some leading economists including John Maynard Keynes. [31], Interested in British parliamentary affairs,[32] he declared himself "a Liberal in all but name", adding that he could never endorse the Liberal Party's support for Irish home rule. Russia would have been defenseless against a nuclear strike at the time of the Churchill's proposal, since the Soviets did not obtain the atomic bomb until 1949. He was given a state funeral six days later on Thursday, 30 January, the first for a non-royal person since W. E. Gladstone in 1898. He died nearly two weeks later on the 24th, which was the seventieth anniversary of his father's death. The matter was kept secret and Churchill went home to Chartwell to recuperate. [9] Churchill later wrote that "she had been my dearest and most intimate friend during the whole of the twenty years I had lived". Churchill was ebullient after the Battle of the River Plate on 13 December 1939 and afterwards welcomed home the crews, congratulating them on "a brilliant sea fight" and saying that their actions in a cold, dark winter had "warmed the cockles of the British heart". Churchill's government maintained the military response to the crisis and adopted a similar strategy for the Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya (1952–1960). Although Churchill expressed doubts on the matter, the so-called Casablanca Declaration committed the Allies to securing "unconditional surrender" by the Axis powers. Churchill did not request a new command, instead securing permission to leave active service. [504] His personal doctor, Lord Moran, said of other races that: "Winston thinks only of the colour of their skin". Four-year-old Richard Hill, left, hands a cigar to Winston Churchill as he arrived at Wolverhampton in 1949 Four-year-old Richard Hill looks around after handing a cigar to Winston Churchill … Winston Churchill was NOT unpopular, he was in fact an international hero and statesman, a British icon of the highest reputation, and … In the General Election of 1951 Labour was defeated. [26] The books were sent to him by his mother, with whom he shared frequent correspondence when abroad. He believed himself to be walking with destiny and that his life so far had been "a preparation for this hour and for this trial". He was always opposed on this by Ulster Unionists. [450] An indication of Churchill's high esteem in the UK is the result of the 2002 BBC poll, attracting 447,423 votes, in which he was voted the greatest Briton of all time, his nearest rival being Isambard Kingdom Brunel some 56,000 votes behind. [385], With a general election looming (there had been none for almost a decade), and with the Labour ministers refusing to continue the wartime coalition, Churchill resigned as Prime Minister on 23 May 1945. [50], In June 1962, when he was 87, Churchill had a fall in Monte Carlo and broke his hip. [495], Whatever his political or reformist attitude at any time, Churchill was always staunchly an imperialist and a monarchist. [82] Churchill won the Manchester North West seat. [112], To ensure funding for their reforms, Lloyd George and Churchill denounced Reginald McKenna's policy of naval expansion,[113] refusing to believe that war with Germany was inevitable. [502], Contrary to this depiction, Churchill's views on race as a whole were judged by his contemporaries, within the Conservative Party itself, to be extreme;[503] he once described Indians as "a beastly people with a beastly religion". After that election, he became Father of the House, the MP with the longest continuous service: he had already gained the distinction of being the only MP to be elected under both Queen Victoria and Elizabeth II. Churchill, the Soldier and War Correspondent . [19] Eager to witness military action, he used his mother's influence to get himself posted to a war zone. [468] Churchill considered himself a military genius but that made him vulnerable to failure and Paul Addison says Gallipoli was "the greatest blow his self-image was ever to sustain". [111] He also promoted the idea of an unemployment insurance scheme, which would be part-funded by the state. He reportedly spoke to right-wing Republican senator Styles Bridges, asking him to persuade Truman to launch a strike against Moscow to destroy the Kremlin and make it easy to handle the directionless Russia. [351] On their way back from Tehran, Churchill and Roosevelt held a second Cairo conference with Turkish president Ismet Inönü, but were unable to gain any commitment from Turkey to join the Allies. We shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old. [342] He was in Moscow 12–16 August and had four lengthy meetings with Stalin. By that time, Churchill had won the doubters over and his succession as party leader was a formality. Eden strongly opposed it and was later able to persuade Churchill to disown it. [324] It was also agreed that the first joint Anglo-American strike would be Operation Torch, the invasion of French North Africa (i.e., Algeria and Morocco). Hilda Churchill in 2018 with a photo of Queen Elizabeth II. This was important for "Europe First", the decision to prioritise victory in Europe over victory in the Pacific, taken by Roosevelt while Churchill was still in mid-Atlantic. [40][25][41] Churchill persisted with his view before and after his stroke, but Eisenhower and Dulles continued to discourage him. [262], In 1938, Churchill warned the government against appeasement and called for collective action to deter German aggression. Churchill had the full support of the two Labour members but knew he could not survive as Prime Minister if both Chamberlain and Halifax were against him. In particular, some critics have equated his undisputed imperialism with racism. [34] Elsewhere, the Malayan Emergency, a guerrilla war fought by pro-independence fighters against Commonwealth forces, had begun in 1948 and continued past Malayan independence (1957) until 1960. [478], Until the outbreak of the Second World War, Churchill's approach to politics generated widespread "mistrust and dislike",[479] largely on account of his two party defections. [3] His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, representing the Conservative Party, had been elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Woodstock in 1873. [244] He returned to America in late January 1932 and completed most of his lectures before arriving home on 18 March. Lord Moran's announcement said: "Shortly after 8 A.M., Sir Winston died at his home." [434] Churchill met Eisenhower to no avail at the Three-Powers (French Prime Minister Joseph Laniel being the third participant) Bermuda Conference in December 1953[435][436] (with Churchill as the host, as the conference was on British territory) and in June/July 1954 at the White House. [289] In response to previous criticisms that there had been no clear single minister in charge of the prosecution of the war, Churchill created and took the additional position of Minister of Defence, making him the most powerful wartime Prime Minister in British history. [38] Churchill believed that Eisenhower did not fully comprehend the danger posed by the H-bomb: Churchill saw it in terms of horror, Eisenhower as merely the latest improvement in military firepower. When he began his biography, Jenkins regarded Gladstone as the greater man but changed his mind in the course of writing. [48] Although the Oldham seats had previously been held by the Conservatives, the result was a narrow Liberal victory. [144] Their third, Sarah, was born in October 1914,[166] and their fourth, Marigold, in November 1918. [6] Later, Churchill was instrumental in giving France a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council, providing another European power to counter-balance the Soviet Union's permanent seat. The announcement by Lord Moran was read to reporters near the Churchill home at 8:35 A.M. (3:35 A.M., New York time). In America, Churchill met Mark Twain, President McKinley and Vice President Theodore Roosevelt; he did not get on well with Roosevelt. Winston Churchill was EIGHTY-ONE YEARS OLD after FIFTY-FIVE YEARS IN OFFICE. [1] It was on this trip that he gave his "Iron Curtain" speech about the USSR and its creation of the Eastern Bloc. [269][270][271], On 3 September 1939, the day Britain declared war on Germany, Chamberlain reappointed Churchill as First Lord of the Admiralty and he joined Chamberlain's war cabinet. [176], On 25 November 1915, Churchill resigned from the government, although he remained an MP. Churchill continued to serve as Leader of the Opposition. [326] He arrived home in mid-January, having flown from Bermuda to Plymouth in an American flying boat, to find that there was a crisis of confidence in both his coalition government and himself personally,[327] and he decided to face a vote of confidence in the Commons, which he won easily.[328]. [10], Churchill began boarding at St George's School in Ascot, Berkshire, at age seven but was not academic and his behaviour was poor. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. [66] He associated with a group of Conservatives known as the Hughligans,[67] but he was critical of the Conservative government on various issues, especially increases in army funding. The policy was known as Lend-Lease and it was formally enacted on 11 March 1941. [244], Having worked on Marlborough for much of 1932, Churchill in late August decided to visit his ancestor's battlefields. [51] There has been speculation that he became very depressed in his final years but this has been emphatically denied by his personal secretary Anthony Montague Browne, who was with him for his last ten years. In addition, Britain agreed to terminate her rule in Anglo-Egyptian Sudan by 1956, though this was in return for Nasser's abandonment of Egyptian claims over the region. The SOE was ordered to promote and execute subversive activity in Nazi-occupied Europe while the Commandos were charged with raids on specific military targets there. [128] Churchill commuted 21 of the 43 capital sentences passed while he was Home Secretary. [460] He also bred butterflies at Chartwell, keeping them in a converted summerhouse each year until the weather was right for their release. [410] While he was Leader of the Opposition, he told John W. Dulanty and Frederick Boland, successive Irish ambassadors to London, that he still hoped for reunification. [15] In May 1951, he met Dulanty's successor Frederick Boland and said: "You know I have had many invitations to visit Ulster but I have refused them all. [459] Using the pseudonym "Charles Morin",[460] he continued this hobby throughout his life and completed hundreds of paintings, many of which are on show in the studio at Chartwell as well as in private collections. [372], Another outcome of Yalta was the so-called Operation Keelhaul. [253] Writing about the Spanish Civil War, he referred to Franco's army as the "anti-red movement", but later became critical of Franco. [181] Churchill narrowly escaped death when, during a visit by his staff officer cousin the 9th Duke of Marlborough, a large piece of shrapnel fell between them. Later that day, he accepted the King's invitation to form a new government, known officially as the National Government, like the Conservative-dominated coalition of the 1930s, but sometimes called the caretaker ministry. Since 12 January 1943, when he set off for the Casablanca Conference, Churchill had been abroad and/or seriously ill for 203 of the 371 days. He suffered a stroke 15 days ago and gradually slipped into a deep sleep from which he never awakened. [492] Similarly, Rhodes James thought that, as a social reformer, Churchill's achievements were "considerable". [210] He did allow some temporary restrictions following the 1921 Jaffa riots. He went from the palace to Whitehall where he addressed another large crowd: "God bless you all. [78], In May 1904, Churchill opposed the government's proposed Aliens Bill, designed to curb Jewish migration into Britain. [325], On 26 December, Churchill addressed a joint meeting of the US Congress but, that night, he suffered a mild heart attack which was diagnosed by his physician, Sir Charles Wilson (later Lord Moran), as a coronary deficiency needing several weeks' bed rest. In 1946 he gave his "Iron Curtain" speech which spoke of the expansionist policies of the Soviet Union and the creation of the Eastern Bloc; Churchill also argued strongly for British independence from the European Coal and Steel Community; he saw this as a Franc… Churchill and 83 other Conservative MPs voted against it. [53] In December, Churchill escaped from the prison and evaded his captors by stowing away aboard freight trains and hiding in a mine. Aware that he was slowing down both physically and mentally, he resigned in April 1955. Two of his most famous works, published after his first premiership brought his international fame to new heights, were his twelve-volume memoir, The Second World War, and the four-volume A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. [309], In other initiatives through June and July 1940, Churchill ordered the formation of both the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and the Commandos. [246] Soon after visiting Blenheim, he was afflicted with paratyphoid fever and spent two weeks at a sanatorium in Salzburg. [215] He wrote an autobiographical history of the war, The World Crisis. For example, 27 Tory MPs voted against him when the matter was debated in the Commons at the end of the month. When implemented, it imposed stricter safety standards at coal mines. The speech ended on a note of defiance coupled with a clear appeal to the United States:[302][303]. [432][418][433] By July of that year, Churchill was deeply regretting that the Democrats had not been returned. After graduating from Harrow, Churchill was accepted into the Royal Military College, Sandhurst in 1893. Upon his death in 1965, he was given a state funeral. [194] He was returned as MP for Dundee and, although the Conservatives won a majority, Lloyd George was retained as Prime Minister. [citation needed], In 1946, Churchill was in America for nearly three months from early January to late March. [188] He quickly negotiated an end to a strike in munitions factories along the Clyde and increased munitions production. For an elderly man, he was remarkably resilient and determined. [357] The big obstacle was Monte Cassino and it was not until mid-May 1944 when it was finally overcome, enabling the Allies to at last advance on Rome, which was taken on 4 June. [416] By December, George VI had become concerned about Churchill's decline and intended asking him to stand down in favour of Eden, but the King had his own serious health issues and died on 6 February without making the request.
