Clement R. Attlee was born in Putney, England, and educated at Oxford.

He served in the War Cabinet during World War II, became deputy Prime Minister in 1942, and succeeded Winston Churchill as Prime Minister in 1945. He was known for his opposition to fascism, and as Prime Minister helped India achieve independence.
