Churchill’s ‘We Shall Fight on the Beaches’ Speech

This is the audio of Winston Churchill’s “We Shall Fight on the Beaches” speech delivered to the English House of Commons on June 4, 1940 during the Battle of France when Germans had successfully invaded France and British and French forces were in retreat to the sea. At the time, morale in Britain over the war was very low. Churchill’s speech warned of a possible attack on England by Nazi Germany but confidently promised to the English people eventual victory: “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.” The famous peroration begins at ten minutes and 16 seconds into the video.
