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!
