History of Winston Churchil!

Winston Churchill was born at 1874 November 30th. His job was the prime minister of Britain for 1940 - 1945.

He is best remembered for successfully leading Britain through World War Two. He was famous for his inspiring speeches, and for his refusal to give in, even when things were going badly.

In 1900 Churchill was elected to Parliament. Over the next 30 years he would hold a number of different offices in the government including a cabinet post in 1908. Soon after Winston Churchill becoming Prime Minister, Germany invaded France and Britain was alone in Europe fighting Hitler. Churchill inspired the country to keep fighting despite the bad circumstances ; When he was prime minister, he replaced with Neville Chamberlain 

In the summer of 1940, Chamberlain became sick. In July he had an operation on his stomach to treat cancer. He tried to return to work, but became too weak, and had to retire. He died on 9 November 1940 of bowel cancer.

We just did interviewed to Winston Churchill and he relied "The world war 2 was very terrible because many of soldier even the innocents civilian has been died."

History of Neville Chamberlain!

Neville Chamberlain was born on 18th March 1869 in Edgbaston, Birmingham.

He became a Member of Parliament at the age of 49 in 1918.Before becoming Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain was the Minister for Health and the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

When Neville Chamberlain became interested in botany (plants), birds and fishing. Neville also loved music and literature (reading). He studied metallurgy at Mason college, which Joseph Chamberlain later made part of the University of Birmingham. Later, he became an apprentice in an accounting company.

In 1916, the prime minister, Lloyd George asked Chamberlain to manage the department in control of conscription, making civillians become soldiers in times of war. Chamberlain and Lloyd-George often argued, and soon they did not like each other. Chamberlain left the job the next year. Instead, he entered the 1918 general election and became the Conservative Member of Parliament for Ladywood in Birmingham.

Instituted in the hope of avoiding war, appeasement was the name given to Britain's policy in the 1930s of allowing Hitler to expand German territory unchecked. Most closely associated with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, it is now widely discredited as a policy of weakness

After the war, Churchill's party lost the election and he was no longer Prime Minister. He was still a major leader in the government, however. He was again elected Prime Minister in 1951. He served the country for many years and then retired. He died on January 24, 1965.

When we interviewed Neville Chamberlain about "Why did you decided to be Prime minister?" and he replied, "I decided to be prime minister because I thought I can be a great leader of Britain."

History of Bernard Law Montgomery!

British Field Marshall Bernard Law Montgomery (1887-1976) was among the most decorated military leaders of World War II. Tapped to take command of the Eighth Army, he earned renown for his part in the first major Allied land victory at El Alamein, Egypt, in 1942.

Montgomery became ground commander of the Anglo-American forces under Dwight D. Eisenhower, and his insistence that invasion forces be increased from three to eight divisions was essential to the Allies’ success on D-Day in 1944.

In August 1942 Prime Minister Winston Churchill appointed him commander of the British Eighth Army in North Africa, which had recently been defeated and pushed back to Egypt by German General Erwin rommel. There Montgomery restored the troops’ shaken confidence and, combining drive with caution, forced Rommel to retreat from Egypt after the Battle of El-Alamein (November 1942). Montgomery then pursued the German armies across North Africa to their final surrender in Tunisia in May 1943. 

Compare of two leaders from WWII

Winston Churchill and Neville Chamberlain showed great performances in World War II and led to British victories.

Not only the two, but also the other leaders showed good performances, but they showed the best performance. If it weren't for these two, I could have won, but I think I could have lost. And what they have in common is that even though they were British prime ministers, they played the biggest role in the war.

First of all, as a personal choice, Winston Churchill is the most amazing. Of course, Neville Chamberlain is the greatest, too, but Winston Churchill was the greatest at trying to concentrate on his work even if he was sick, which means he thinks about his work more than his body.
