When Winston Churchill was in his early thirties, he tried with all his powers to awaken the English speaking world to the impending dangers of a resurgent Germany. At the time Germany was being influenced by one Corporal Hitler, but Churchill’s warnings were all to no avail.

So it was therefore ironic that after he had done so much to try and avert the conflict, that when war broke out, Britain turned to Churchill in her fight against Nazism. This sense of irony never left him.

Years later American President Roosevelt asked him the question, "What did he feel the war should be called?" Churchill answered without hesitation, "The Unnecessary War."

Churchill knew the difficulty of getting people to listen, especially listening to things they did not want to hear and to be confronted with tough choices that will affect a person’s lifestyle.
