The Fascinating Life of Winston Churchill

Most of us know Winston Churchill as the leader of the British forces during WWII.  However, apart from being a brilliant and fearless Prime Minister, Winston Churchill lived an extraordinary and eclectic life. 

Churchill was full of wit and cunning determination, had a colourful and varied political career, played a significant role in WWI and after picking up a brush at age 40, he became an accomplished painter.

Churchill was: A Nobel Prize winning writer, a historian, a dog lover, obsessed with zippers, and particular about his pyjamas among other things. But that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the life of one of the most iconic people of the 20th century.

As we approach the 50th anniversary of his death in 1965, The Open University has created a modern portrait that highlights the lesser known, albeit just as fascinating, Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill.
