However, after World War II ended, Winston Churchill lost an election, as many people saw him as a “war-time Prime Minister.” Some of the great leadership traits Churchill possessed were foresight, passion, and refusal to accept defeat. These traits were on display throughout the war.

Before Marshall’s death in Washington, D.C., on October 16, 1959, Winston Page 5 Churchill paid him the following tribute: “During my long and close association with successive American administrations, there are few men whose qualities of mind and character have impressed me so deeply as those of General Marshal.

Sir Winston Churchill closes his speech with the line “Come then, let us go forward together with our united strength.” which can be seen as a war cry, beckoning his troops forward to approach and defeat the enemy in an attempt to gain victory and survive.

I also believe that his composure helped instil the assurance in the government and the people that England will remain a free country after the war, and that his honesty for the task at hand helped the nation face their ordeal, together.

Racial and Discrimination Issues in the United States During War Time Americans today revere World War II as the "best war ever."

Many Americans envision this time as a 'golden age' of American history and culture. America emerged at the end of the war as the leader of the free world with much to be proud of. Michael Adams examines this time period closely, and concludes that Americans have distorted this period in our memories and minds to exclude other disturbing facts and realities which make the era less glamorous.
