Today In History...Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill, barely six weeks in office as Britain’s prime minister and confronted with the threat of invasion from Nazi-occupied France, rose in the House of Commons and, in 36 minutes of soaring oratory, sought to rally his countrymen with what has gone down in history as his 'finest hour' speech.
I would add to this, that Mr. Churchill didn't just rally his own countrymen with that speech, he rallied the free world!
