Rare photos from Winston Churchill’s childhood
Born to an aristocratic family in 1874, Winston had a younger brother, Jack. A nurse looked after the boys, because their mother and father were often busy and away from home. Winston served in the British military and worked as a writer before going into politics.
After becoming prime minister in 1940, he helped lead a successful Allied strategy with the U.S. and Russia during WWII to defeat the Axis powers and craft post-war peace. Elected prime minister again in 1951, he introduced key domestic reforms. Churchill died at age 90 in 1965.
