Storyline

Walking With Destiny highlights Churchill's years in the political wilderness, his early opposition to Adolf Hitler and Nazism, and his support for Jews under threat by the Nazi regime. As historian John Lukacs explains, Churchill may not have won the War in 1940, but without him, the War most certainly would have been lost. Sir Martin Gilbert, historical consultant for the film and Churchill's official biographer, adds that had Churchill's warnings about Nazi Germany's racial policies towards Jews been heeded in the early 1930's, the Holocaust may never have occurred. The film examines why Winston Churchill's legacy continues to be relevant in the 21st Century and explores why his leadership remains inspirational to current day political leaders and diplomats.

Rousing!
25 July 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Winston Churchill was a great man...perhaps the best of the 20th century. Because he was such an important figure and did so much, I was very impressed by this documentary about Churchill's war years. This is because it has an amazingly rousing musical score--one worthy of a man of such greatness. This, combined with lovely narration by Ben Kingsley, made this film a pleasure to watch. However, one thing you should be aware of--the film ONLY covers the period from 1939 to the US entry into WWII in December, 1941! So, anyone looking for a complete look at the man should look elsewhere OR harass the makers of this film until they make more films about the life of this remarkable man (I am for the latter....but harass is perhaps a big too strong a word--just encourage them). The bottom line is that this is a great film...and it sure left me wanting more.
