more About Churchill War Rooms
Iconic image of Winston Churchill
A group of basement offices in Whitehall was chosen to serve as the command and control centre of Britain during WWII. Churchill’s war rooms, otherwise known as the Cabinet War Rooms, were used for the War Cabinet meetings some 115 times during air raids on London. A secure connection allowed Churchill so speak directly to President Roosevelt from safety. A map centre was used to mark the locations of British military positions around the world and well as providing daily military information for the King, Prime Minister and military Chiefs of Staff. The War Rooms were completed just a week before Britain declared war on Germany and were operational for 6 years until 1945.
