DESCRIPTION: (from HBO's web site) For five years, Winston Churchill played a huge role in thwarting the Nazis during World War II, his intrepid leadership and rhetoric inspiring millions to fight Hitler's Germany to the bitter end. This powerful follow-up to HBO's Emmy(R)-winning The Gathering Storm follows Churchill from 1940 to 1945 as he guided his beleaguered nation through the crucible of the war years--even as his marriage was encountering its own struggles. Brendan Gleeson stars as the steadfast Churchill, with Janet McTeer as his devoted, but exasperated wife Clemmie. Also with Len Cariou who portrays U.S. president Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
