During World War II, families in England huddled around their radios to listen to the inspiring words of Winston Churchill. On June 4, 1940 after the Dunkirk Evacuation, which resulted in the rescue of over 338,000 British, French and Belgian soldiers from the German army, Churchill delivered perhaps his most famous and stirring speech:
“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…”
These words provided strength to the people of a country under siege. To read about how leaders today can learn from Churchill’s example, click HERE.
