Winston Churchill was born into aristocracy and got his start as a young army officer in British India, the Sudan, and the Second Boer War. He worked his way up in ranks to First Lord of the Admiralty, and he was a fierce opponent of the German Nazis.
 
Churchill was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, and again from 1951 to 1955. He is widely considered one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century. Churchill was also an historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only British Prim Minister who won a Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person in history to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.
