  • The statue of Winston Churchill was inaugurated by the French President Jacques Chirac in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II on the 80th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. The statue runs interesting mixed emotions, some in France recognize his efforts in the liberation of Europe whereas some see Churchill's order to scuttle the French fleet to ensure it didnt fall in to the hands of the Nazi's as an unforgivable act because of the cost to the lives of French sailors. Of course without that act sailors may have died anyway as the act protected the UK and brought America into the war on the side of the allies. As always, if you found this review useful please remember to like it. If people like the review (whether you agree or not), it encourages me to write more ;)
  • This particular bronze statue of Winston Churchill was sculpted by Jean Cardot in 1988 and was modelled on a photo that had been taken as he was walking down the Avenue des Champs Elysees on the victory march with the French World War 2 leader General Charles de Gaulle.
