Churchill’s cancelled appointment changes world history

Today, the 25th November 2015 is the centenary of a remarkable event involving none other than Sir Winston S Churchill. This happened a few days after he resigned from the Government following the debacle of the Dardanelles Campaign and Gallipoli. Churchill under immense pressure following his handling of Britain’s disastrous campaign on the Turkish coast, decided to take himself off to the Western Front whilst remaining a Member of Parliament. It was on this day that this seemingly innocuous situation transpired that could have changed world history not only having an effect on the outcome of World War One but more importantly also on World War Two but for a chance of fate.

You can read more about this on our World War One diary blog post which will be published on 7th January 2016 on this link.
