May 10, 1940: Prime Minister Winston Churchill


We remember that Winston Churchill became Prime Minister of the UK on this day in 1940:
On May 13, in his first speech before the House of Commons, Prime Minister Churchill declared that “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat” and offered an outline of his bold plans for British resistance. In the first year of his administration, Britain stood alone against Nazi Germany, but Churchill promised his country and the world that the British people would “never surrender.” They never did.
We remember PM Churchill as one of the great men of the 20th century.    His books about World War II are a must read for anyone learning the history of the war.
