There are vast numbers,
not only in this Island but in every land,
who will render faithful service in this war,
but whose names will never be known, 
whose deeds will never be recorded.

____________________________________________________________

The purpose of these pages is to tell the story of Churchill's life - not to give a detailed account of the wars he was involved in, for that is a vast subject.

To obtain an idea of the cause and magnitude of the war, examine the monthly calender for each year - they include many photographs.

It is important to remember that heavy censorship of news took place throughout them, and therefore knowledge of many of these events was not available until long after they happened - or until after the wars had ended.
