In the fall of 1939, the nations of the world were embroiled in the deadliest conflict in history. Each side believed it was fighting a just and necessary war, and each side was determined to fight to the finish. In this collection of great speeches from World War II, political and military leaders persuade and exhort their listeners to the great fight.
"This collection brings together speeches by some of the most distinguished political leaders of the twentieth century together with political analysis. Each speech is introduced by a brief historical and political discussion, and a general introduction gives a helpful overview and precise historical context. The combination of the original speeches and the present day analysis provides a fine starting point for reports and class discussion."
