Winston Churchill has generally been painted as the single-minded, hard-driving villain behind the World War I Dardanelles / Gallipoli debacle. Bill Fisher, Churchill scholar, historian, and VP of The Churchill Society of Georgia, (www.georgiachurchill.com) will present the chronology and key events of this infamous episode and show how the real story is much more complicated than most know. The simplified and accepted story is much the product of political positioning of the day. So what else has changed? There are great lessons for today's decisions in this even of nearly 100 years ago.
According to Joe Wilson, Society President, “The Winston Churchill Society of Georgia is dedicated to the continued awareness of the significant role Sir Winston Churchill, former British Prime Minister played in the world during one of its most significant and difficult times.” He also mentioned that the Society holds 3 lectures per year, along with monthly meetings at the Dunwoody Tavern for one on one conversations and discussion concerning Churchill and his impact on world history. The Society welcomes anyone interested in Churchill, history and great camaraderie to join them. New members and contributors are welcome.
