||Of all the political leaders who dominated the 20th Century, Winston Spencer Churchill is unique. In 1900, Joseph Stalin was a junior clerk, Adolf Hitler, a spoiled 11-year old child, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a freshman at Harvard; but Winston Churchill was already a military expert, a celebrated author, and a member of the English Parliament. This episode of Profiles traces his long, varied, and heroic career that has touched some of the most monumental events of our time.
