Born to an English nobleman in the line of the Dukes of Marlborough and an American heiress, Churchill, though a weak student, distinguished himself early as a writer, soldier and war correspondent. Covering the Boer War in South Africa he wrote home: “Nothing is so exhilarating as being shot at without result.” Rising through the ranks of government ministries he became a Member of Parliament at 26 and First Lord of the Admiralty at 37. He was among the first to recognize the threat that Adolf Hitler posed and was elected Prime Minister at the outbreak of the WWII, famously rallying his people in the Battle of Britain. Knighted for his service to the UK and a Fellow of the Royal Society, Churchill was also the first person to be named an Honorary Citizen of the United States. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 for his six-volume masterpiece The Second World War, a chronicle of tenacity. “Success is going from failure to failure without losing one’s enthusiasm.”
