The page of Churchill, Winston, English biography
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874 – 1965) was a Nobel Prize Laureate in Literature.
Winston Churchill, a soldier, politician and finally prime minister, was particularly remembered for his indomitable spirit while leading Great Britain to victory in World War II. Churchill fought with the British Army in India and Sudan, and as a journalist was captured in South Africa. He became a member of Parliament in 1900 and remained an MP for over 64 years. His stirring speeches, bulldog tenacity and refusal to make peace with Adolf Hitler made him popular to lead England through World War II. Churchill wrote a plethora of histories, biographies and memoirs.
In 1953 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature; he was knighted the same year.
