In a key episode, Churchill went to the larger Cabinet and won overwhelming approval for his stalwartness. Here, he made his famous statement, We shall go and we shall fight it out, here or elsewhere, and if at last the long story is to end, it were better it should end, not through surrender, but only when we are rolling senseless on the ground.
After the war, Churchill wrote of the reaction of his colleagues: Quite a number seemed to jump up from the table and came running to my chair, shouting and patting me on the back. There is no doubt had I at this juncture faltered at all in leading the nation, I should have been hurled out of office.
He didnt falter. Churchill tapped into and built up the resolve of the British people. There was a white glow, he wrote later, overpowering, sublime, which ran through our island from end to end. Hitler wouldnt neutralize the British, who escaped Dunkirk and kept up the fight.
The so-called Great Man theory of history might be overly simplistic, but history indisputably has its great men. Darkest Hour does justice to one of them.

What is interesting is that Churchill’s comments on islam are now considered hate speech in the UK.
Given that situation, Brits watching this film might be inclined to reconsider Churchill and to revisit his statements on islam and other things.
He just might just save the UK and Western civilization in Europe once again.

At least temporarily.
The sequel: Angela Merkle: the woman who threw civilization away.
I wonder if the Bolsheviks in Hollywood will give Gary Oldman the Oscar for best actor?
He's been nominated for a Golden Globe. That's often an indication that an Oscar nomination will follow.
If Gary Oldman agrees to make anti-Trump speech.
Immediately after he left office is when Britain turned hard-core to the left.
Food and fuel rationing lasted into the mid 1950s in the UK.
Courtesy the hard lefties who took over after the war.
Actually, I think it was the American GI and an M1 rifle, along with his sister Rosie the riveter that saved the world....
true- but during the period covered by this movie, FDR had US on the sidelines, even turning Churchill down when he requested help. with the fall of much of Europe around him and no US aid Churchill stood starkly alone on the world stage.
Had there been no Churchill most any other British PM would have cut the deal Hitler offered during those hopeless days. The Islamist problem would have at least been settled.
JFK’s father Joseph P Kennedy was the Ambassador to London at that time, and he strongly opposed against providing any aids to UK.
I admire Churchill greatly but Just look at the state of Europe today.
the wrong side won.
Multiculturalists took over and opened Great Britain and all of Europe to conquest by the pillow, something that is utterly permanent.
The microsecond they no longer needed Churchill, they threw him away.
Your are correct. However, would not sell short the Russian peasant with a PPSH.
My hatred of Bolshevism and Bolsheviks is not founded on their silly system of economics or their absurd doctrine of an impossible equality. It arises from the bloody and devastating terrorism which they practice in every land into which they have broken, and by which alone their criminal regime can be maintained.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.
The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the infence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.
It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

Theresa May. The woman who blew it.
A master of the English language. I also revere MacArthur for the same brilliance.
