Winston Churchill was no-one’s first choice for Prime Minister. But in Great Britain’s ‘Darkest Hour’, through his refusal to surrender and determination to fight on, he became their last hope.
Within days of his appointment, the Nazi forces had surrounded the British and French armies and were on the brink of annihilating them.
