                                                Winston Churchill         (Middle ability) Winston’s Childhood Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill born 30 November 1874    His father was Lord Randolph Churchill, the third son of the 7th Duke of Marlborough. Winston's mother was Lady Randolph Churchill daughter of American millionaire Leonard Jerome. He spent much of his childhood at boarding schools. He was rarely visited by his mother whom he loved, despite his letters begging her to come and his father wouldn’t let  him come home. Churchill did badly at school, regularly being punished for poor work and lack of effort. Life as a Young Man He attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. At age 20, Churchill joined the army as a Subaltern of the IV  Queen's Own Hussars Cavalry regiment. This regiment was stationed in Bangalore, India. He fought in many battles including the famous cavalry charge at the battle of Omdurman.  On 12 September 1908 Churchill married Clementine Hozier In 1899 Churchill left the army and decided to become a politician. He stood as a Conservative candidate in Oldham but  was not elected.

Churchill set off as a war correspondent for the Morning Post, receiving £250 a month for four months reporting on the  Boer War between Britain and Afrikaners in South Africa After returning from South Africa, Churchill again stood as a Conservative party candidate in Oldham in the 1900  general election and was elected. In 1911, Churchill became First Lord of the Admiralty, a post he would hold into the First World War. WW2 At the outbreak of the Second World War Churchill was again appointed First Lord of the Admiralty, just as he was in  the first part of the First World War. The Navy were very pleased about this, they said "Winston's back!" At the beginning of the WW2 King George VI asked Churchill to be Prime Minister and to form an all-party  government. Churchill's speeches were a great inspiration to the people of the United Kingdom during WW2. Although Churchill's role in World War II was very important, he had many enemies in his own country. Life after WW2
