In 1915, the second year of World War I, Churchill was held responsible for the disastrous Dardanelles and Gallipoli campaigns, and was excluded from the war coalition government……..He resigned and volunteered to command an infantry battalion in France, but in 1917 returned to politics as a cabinet member in the government of Lloyd George…….After the outbreak of World War II in Europe, Churchill was called back to his post as First Lord of the Admiralty and eight months later replaced the Neville Chamberlain as prime minister of a new coalition government……..In the first year of his administration, Britain stood alone against Nazi Germany, but Churchill promised the country and the world that the British people would “never surrender.” He rallied the British people to a resolute resistance and expertly orchestrated Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin into an alliance that eventually crushed the Axis. In July 1945, 10 weeks after Germany’s defeat, his Conservative government suffered an electoral loss against Clement Attlee’s Labour Party, and Churchill resigned as prime minister………He became leader of the opposition and in 1951 was again elected prime minister……..Two years later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his six-volume historical study of World War II and for his political speeches……..In 1955, he retired as prime minister but remained in Parliament until 1964, the year before his death #OTD #WinstonChurchill #WWII #BritishHistory #Parliament #AceHistoryNews
