On June 18, 1940, the relatively new Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Spencer Churchill, delivered a stirring speech to Parliament, and he spoke to the nation, in which he outlined the fact that, despite the nearly miraculous evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk, just 12 days before, Hitler's Nazi war machine would very soon attack Britain. In this peroration from the speech, he pointed out that if they survived the terrible onslaught, history would look back and say . . . "this was their finest hour."
