During the early days of World War II, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler, or fight on against incredible odds.
The film takes place in May, 1940. In real life, Elizabeth Layton didn't become Churchill's secretary until 1941.

Churchill says Edward Wood, 3rd Viscount Halifax would never have turned down the offer to be prime minister as he was the fourth son of an earl. However, Halifax was the son of a viscount, not an earl, a mistake that Winston Churchill would not have made. Edward Wood was made 1st Earl of Halifax in 1944. Though he was indeed the youngest of four sons, all his brothers died young. From the age of 8 years old, he was his father's sole heir, and thus he would not have grown up feeling deprived of a dignity by order of birth, as is implied in the dialogue.
