He was a soldier, politician, statesman, military innovator, orator, writer, sportsman, painter, builder, Nobel Prize winner for Literature, doting father, world traveler and devoted husband. Students will examine his written works, a plethora of biographies written by his admirers and detractors, movies about his life and adventures, excerpts of his speeches and the wide variety of Churchill related memorabilia.
