"Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." Winston Churchill, 1942.
This young man was 19 years old when this photo was taken. Born of an American mother and a British father descended from the famous duchess Georgiana of Devonshire, this man would distinguish himself as the Prime Minister of two monarchs, and by solidly putting himself in opposition of one of the greatest evils the world has ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Winston Churchill.
Confident pose: Winston aged seven. He went on to serve as Prime Minister from 1940-1945, during World War II, and again from 1951-1955
