D-Day seems as good a time as any to recall a quotation by Winston Churchill. In 1940, at a time when it appeared that Great Britain would fall to Nazi Germany, the nation seemed to be facing an impossible choice: to fight and lose or to surrender.

To explain his decision never to give up the fight, Churchill declared: "nations that go down fighting rise up again; those that surrender tamely are finished."
