THE GATHERING STORM
WWII



 

Prime Minister during the Battle of Britain from 1940 to 1945, at war with Nazi Germany.
His speeches and radio broadcasts
helped to inspire the British people during their darkest hour.

1940 to 1941

When the British Empire stood almost alone against Adolf Hitler's war machine,
among his speeches to Parliament and the people were:


"You ask what is our aim."
"The answer is one word--Victory."
"Victory at all costs."
"Victory in spite of all terror." 
"Victory however long and hard the road may be." 
"For without victory there is no survival."

"We shall persevere."


On the 15th of August 1940, the Battle of Britain had reached a critical point,
during air raids- the Blitz and night bombings.
Sir Winston gave a tribute to pilots of the Royal Air Force Fighter Command.


"Never in the field of human conflict have so many owed so much to so few."
"We shall go on 'til the end."
"We shall fight them on the land, on the sea and in the air."
"All we ask is give us the tools and we will finish the job."
"Never, never, never give up."
"We shall defend our island nation whatever the cost may be."
"We shall fight them on the beaches, in the fields, in the streets.
We will fight them from our rooftops and in our gardens. We shall never surrender."


On December 7, 1941, the Empire of Japan, unprovoked, bombed Pearl Harbor
in a surprise attack.
The United States signed a Declaration of War on the Empire of Japan,
joining Britain and the Allied Forces in the war effort on all fronts.

On December 8, 1941, the British government, in unity, declared war on Japan.
WWII was at full charge.



In February, 1945, after years of war and bloodshed on all continents,
the Yalta Conference was called by the following world leaders:
Prime Minister Churchill, Great Britain
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the United States
Joseph Stalin, USSR.



The three leaders agreed to demand Germany's immediate surrender.

On the 8th of May, 1945, in Berlin, Germany officially surrendered ending the war in Europe.

"Our finest hour."

Winston Churchill, the lion's roar, had led Britain to victory.

In conclusion--in 1963, Churchill, the statesman, was made honorary citizen of the USA.

 Churchill died on the 24th of January, 1965 at the age of 90.


Churchill's Funeral Procession passes through Trafalgar Square.

After his state funeral at St. Paul's Cathedral, with full military honors,
he was buried in the family plot at Bladon, Oxfordsh
ire.
