Very Short Fact: On this day in 1940, after 3 months of the Battle Of Britain in the skies over the South Coast, Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, makes the fourth of his famous wartime speeches in which he said: “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”
Churchill embodied a traditional sense of patriotic unity as no one else amongst his contemporaries could ever do. War gave his career a new impetus and relevance. His inspiring oratory over the radio and in the Commons conjured up new reserves of national will-power in this ‘finest hour’ for his country.
