Sir Winston Churchill, a British politician, served as Prime Minister of United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945. Although a hero of the World War II, he was defeated in the 1945 election. He was also a historian, writer and artist. His wartime speeches made him very popular among the people of his country. His famous World War II speech We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on beaches, we shall fight on landing grounds, we shall fight in fields and in streets, we shall fight in hills. We shall never surrender is stuff of the legends. -MUHAMMAD DAHEEM, Lahore, April 17.
