Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874-1965) was a British Prime Minister and author who was born at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock Oxfordshire, England. Winston Churchill attended school at Harrow school and later the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He was born as the oldest of two boys of Randolf Henry Spencer Churchill and American Jennie Jerome. Winston Churchill served as a war correspondent with the Spanish army in Cuba during 1895, and later served in the British military in India (1896), Pakistan (1897), and Sudan (1898). In 1899 he served as a war correspondent for the London Morning Post in the Boer War, were he was captured and imprisoned by the Boers and later escaped.

Winston Churchill has often been referred to as an excellent orator despite his self described speech impediment, and is famous for his empowered speeches and speaking in Parliament. He was first elected to Parliament in 1900 as a conservative member for Oldham. His early career in Parliament is notable for his opposition to the tariff reform ideas of Joseph Chamberland, and his siding with the Liberals in the 1904 and 1905 sessions of Parliament. Subsequent to joining the Liberal Party in 1905 he served as the secretary of Parliament for the colonies for Prime Minister Henry Campbell-Bannerman, and was elected as a Liberal member of Parliament for Manchester shortly after. Winston Churchill went on to hold a number of key positions in the British Liberal Party including undersecretary of state to the colonies, President of the Trade Board (1908), Home Secretary (1910), and finally as First Lord of the Admiralty (1911).

In his roll as First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill was blamed for the Dardanelles disaster of World War One in 1915, and subsequently resigned the position under pressure. Following this period, Winston Churchill held numerous other British Liberal government and British military positions including chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Minister of Munitions (1917), secretary of state for war and air (1918), secretary of state for the colonies (1921). In 1924 he turned back to the Conservative Party in opposition of socialism, and served as chancellor of the exchequer. In this position Winston Churchill returned Britain to the gold standard in 1925. Following the formation of the Labour Party in 1929, he withdrew from politics and dedicated much of his time to writing his books. The books by Winston Churchill of this period include Marlborough: His Life and Times (1938), and A History of the English Speaking Peoples (published much later in 1958).

Leading up to World War Two Winston Churchill was against the appeasement of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Shortly after the beginning of World War Two he again became First Lord of the Admiralty, and following the British defeat in Norway he was appointed Prime Minister of England by King George VI. As Prime Minister during World War Two he is famous for the measures he took to prevent the German invasion of Great Britain, and his enlistment of foreign countries in World War Two. In 1941 Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Atlantic Charter which outlined the foreign policy of England and the United States. Together with President Roosevelt, and Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, Prime Minister Winston Churchill was instrumental in defeating Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany in World War Two.

Following World War Two Winston Churchill lost the election in 1945, and was re-elected as Prime Minister in 1951. In 1953 he was knighted for his service to England, and also won the Nobel prize for literature in the same year. Following signs of deteriorating health Winston Churchill resigned from his position as Prime Minister in 1955, but continued to serve in the house of commons until 1964. As evidence of his influence and service to humanity, Winston Churchill was made the first honorary United States citizen in history by Congress in 1963. He is also the first commoner to have a state funeral attended by a reigning British Monarch.

Winston Churchill wrote many books in his lifetime, and was also an artist famous for his landscape paintings.
