British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is faced with a tough choice as he must decide whether to sign a peace treaty with Adolf Hitler's Germany or continue fighting the war against them.

So it’s the 40s and the opposition Labour Party in Parliament demands the resignation of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain for being too weak in the face of the Nazi onslaught.

Chamberlain tells Conservative Party colleagues he wants Lord Halifax as his successor, but Halifax does not feel the time is right.

Chamberlain decides to choose the only man whom the opposition parties will accept as the leader of a national governmentWinston Churchill, the First Lord of the Admiralty, who correctly predicted the danger from Adolf Hitler before the war.
