"Considered one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century, Winston Churchill served the cause of the British Empire for nearly 60 years as a soldier, writer, and statesman. He began his political career as a Conservative Member of Parliament in 1900, but crossed over to the Liberals from 1904-24, where he led the effort to establish minimum wages and near-universal health insurance. In the 1930s, his was one of the few voices who warned against the rising power of Nazi Germany - a very unpopular stance in a country still reeling from the carnage of WWI. With Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939, his predictions of another global war proved correct, and he became Prime Minister just before the Blitzkrieg stormed through France in 1940. For the next year, England stood alone, absorbing punishing air attacks during the Battle of Britain. Churchill embodied the country's spirit of defiance in fiery speeches, including his famous exhortation: 'Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.'"
Avoid rallying at 45 degree angles, since your Troops are defenseless until meeting the rally point, and it is very possible Cannon Towers, and Troops can kill Churchill and your Troops if you pass by the defensive Buildings.
If you are attacking without Tanks with your Troops, Churchill can take up some of the damage, and is best used to take out Mortar fire. Beware not to rally your troops with Churchill to a Mortar that can still hit your troops, since Churchill will be the only one left alive.
The tank Winston Churchill appears to be driving is a Churchill model, likely a Mk. VII, also known as the infantry tank Mk. IV. This was one of the heaviest tanks fielded by the allies during WW2. It had a great climbing ability, as well as good armor protection (up to 152 mm.) in later generations.
In 1911, Churchill turned his attention away from domestic politics when he became the First Lord of the Admiralty (akin to the Secretary of the Navy in the U.S.).
Churchill proposed a military campaign that soon dissolved into disaster: the 1915 invasion of the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey.
Winston Churchill took his place as Prime Minister in May 1940.
In 1953, Queen Elizabeth made Winston Churchill a knight of the Order of the Garter.
He died in 1965, one year after retiring from Parliament.
