I was curious about how Churchill behaved during the tough war time, and how he got things done without necessary support.One observation which is useful to me. That's everyone will have fear at some moment. No matter he is a prime minister, or a king. Beyond the titles, they are ordinary human. They also need support from their loved ones, and the people surround them to conquer the fear, to gain the confidence.Another interesting thing I learned from the movie is that Churchill was elected as the prime minister not because he is the perfect one, but because he is the only option for his party. All the PMs/Presidents are the results of compromise among involved stakeholders. I also came to a more proper understanding about Chamberlain by this movie. In the history class, I didn't quite understand the word of "appeasement". Just simply thought that means Chamberlain was a traitor of his country. In this movie, I got another understanding about Chamberlain's appeasement policy. He just wanted to protect his country and people with the approach which seems making sense at that war time.The words of "you can not reason with a Tiger when your head is in its mouth" seems quite obvious, but why Chamberlain's appeasement policy got supported at the beginning? I need to google it.
