Today in History, April 5: 1955 – British Prime Minister Winston Churchill resigns his post. One would think he was ending his service to his country after having served for 60 years, since 1895, courageously on the battlefield, in Parliament, as First Lord of the Admiralty, helping lead Britain into preparation for WWI; he was one of the few sounding the warning of Hitler’s aggression leading to WWII, then led his country and to a large part the world through that conflict to victory. After his retirement, he returned to parliament until 1964.
