We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air,
we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds
we shall fight in the fields
and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender

Ref the title of this quiz: there's no apostrophe in 'Nazis'. You never make a plural by sticking an apostrophe in.

For some reason I have always thought this list included Italy. The more you know.

My family lived in London during the war. I once asked my mother "Weren't you terrified when the Nazis reached the beaches at Dunkirk - just a few miles across the Channel?"

"No", she said "Churchill told us it would be all right and we knew it would be."

It's a matter of perspective, I suppose. Churchill was a monstrous man, which was what was needed during WW2. If you could ask the ANZACs he landed at Gallipoli in WW1, I don't reckon there'd be too many who thought he was a hero, but it was partly his ability to send men into fights they had little chance of winning, knowing thousands would be slaughtered, that won WW2. He also wasn't as popular with the public as people seem to think. He was voted out at the first election after WW2, and even when he was re-elected in 1950, it was with fewer votes than the Labour party. We humans have a need for heroes, and we have a tendency to whitewash our heroes' flaws in order to 'purify' them. There's a statue to Bomber Harris, for example, a man indisputably guilty of terrible war crimes, under Churchill's direction. Is it not more mature to recognise the importance of these figures, while also acknowledging their faults?

He was voted out because the people supported Attlee, a visionary who was almost as integral to the war effort as Churchill and one who likely cease further hostilities. Britain was graced by 2 of our greatest leaders when we needed them most.

I shouldn't feel proud, but nevertheless I was able to get all of these without looking, and I do.
