The Secrets of Leadership of Winston Churchill
A British icon, Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill is one of the leaders that we can remember in world history. He was a British politician and was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a writer (as Winston S. Churchill), and an artist. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 for his six-volume history of World War II.

Secrets of Leadership of Winston Churchill
“I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat… “We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.” – Winston Churchill First Speech as Prime Minister to House of Commons, On May 10, 1940
