He was a man who had a very clear sense of national and imperial dignity, a man with a sound grasp of international affairs and a man with infinite passion and marvelous determination. Britain needed an anachronism like Winston Churchill at a time when everyone was ready to surrender to the tyrannous monstrosity of the Nazi's just to maintain peace. Churchill was a man who believed in what he stood for and would fight to preserve the foundation of his country. But his struggle against the defeatist attitude not only inspired hope in his own distraught country but also among the defeated nations of Continental Europe.
Winston Churchill was the possesor of many admirable leadership qualities but one of his most inspiring attributes was his determination to never back down and to keep fighting on, or in his own words, to 'Keep Buggering On.' Churchill understood the dangers of defeatism and poor morale as a soldier and leader, so he set the example needed to inspire others around him and he kept “buggering on.”
