The Second World War
Without the determination, leadership and oratory of Sir Winston Churchill, the outcome of the second world war may not have been the same. His confidence and his speeches gave the country heart, even at the bleakest moments.
After Dunkirk, when hundreds of small ships had rallied to rescue the thousands of British and French troops trapped between the advancing German forces and the sea, and victory had been snatched from the jaws of defeat, Churchill made one of his most famous rallying speeches of the war:
We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island
Whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds,
We shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender
Sir Winston Churchill
