He was the prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, when he led Britain to victory in the Second World War, and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as a Member of Parliament (MP). In his lifetime Churchill published more than forty books in sixty volumes, as well as hundreds of articles.
