A film series based on Sir Winston Churchill's Memoirs of World War II.

In their last offensive of the war, the Germans strike through the Ardennes in an attempt to split the Allied armies and create another Dunkirk, and the Battle of the Bulge begins. Patton's army strikes to the north-west, with Montgomery moving south to meet him; and the Germans are forced back behind their frontier with heavy losses.
In Greece, Communist guerillas attempt to seize Athens by force and civil war breaks out. Churchill meets Archbishop Damaskinos, and on January 4, 1945, a new democratic Government is formed.
