Winston Spencer Churchill became Great Britain’s Prime Minister on the 10th of May 1940 after the country had finally lost all faith in the great appeaser, Neville Chamberlain. The German invasion of the Lowland countries the final straw, for a population now under the constant threat of tyranny. Now the people demanded a strong leader and chose the charismatic, cigar smoking Churchill. With unique footage this film examines his strong reserve and indomitable strength as he resolves to “go it alone” against Hitler. With Hitler finally turning on his one time ally Stalin, and with the creation of the Eastern Front, this tells the true story of how Churchill took his rightful place “at the top table”, between the World’s two great would-be superpowers, and of the shaky and strained relationship they had. “Never have so many owed so much to one man”.
That man is Winston Spencer Churchill.
