Winston Churchill
Churchill’s ‘Never Was So Much Owed by So Many to So Few’ Speech

In this audio recording, former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill made a speech to incite confidence and inspiration to his countrymen on August 20, 1940 as the United Kingdom prepared for a German invasion during World War II. The Allies had suffered some demoralizing defeats in the past few months but Churchill tells his country that the Allies are looking stronger than ever. He states one of his most famous lines: “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few” with the Royal Air Force (RAF), who were fighting the Battle of Britain at the time, being “the few.” The success in the following battle by the Allies’ aircrew was thought to be in part due to these encouraging words spoken by this iconic British leader.
