Churchill succeeded in politics and became home secretary. Soon he resigned and applied for a command in the Expeditionary force. Then Churchill led his country in the world war. He assumed the prime minister ship of Britain at a very critical point, when the whole Europe along with Britain was at the receiving end of the German Nazi attacks.

    Churchill showed immense courage and confidence and declared that the English would fight the enemy everywhere - on land, in air and on water - but they would not surrender to the unjust forces. This statement instilled much confidence in the troubled hearts of army as well as his countrymen. Then, after six years of fierce fighting, Churchill led his country victory.
