Although Churchill is best remembered as prime minister of England during World War II, he was also an accomplished historian, having published dozens of volumes on the history of England and Europe. Additionally, he has been noted as a master of oratory. He was educated at the private school Harrow, where he did not distinguish himself academically. Sensing that his son held more promise in military activity than in intellectual pursuits, Lord Randolph enrolled him at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.
This was probably because Churchill did not see himself as a natural speaker, but rather one who worked hard to hone his craft. So he did, and he did it well. His speeches are powerful and had a major impact on world affairs when they were spoken.
I can answer in one word: 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. He said he would tell them what told his new ministers: The Liberties of Britain January 10, But once we touch reality, once we touch their interests and privileges - [kicks his platform] Out!

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 Though there was national euphoria and relief at the unexpected deliverance at Dunkirk, the peril facing Britain was now universally perceived. But Churchill told the world that Britain would stand firm: 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 Never Despair March 1, ; House of Commons The hydrogen bomb has made an astounding incursion into the structure of our lives and thoughts.
Churchill, wary of nuclear weaponry, set out to warn the House of their destructive power. He even flirts with the idea of disarmament, but rules it out owning to the international context of the Cold War.
He paints a grim picture of the effects of the Hydrogen bomb, but then abruptly changes tone. The Churchillian optimism shrines through in his conclusion: Meanwhile, never flinch, never weary, never despair.

But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
Churchill had been speaking on trade unions in the House for a better part of an hour, when he suddenly lost his train of thought. He stalled for time, but could not finish his speech.
