Great Speeches Collection: Winston Churchill Speech - Blood, Sweat and Tears

The History Place - Great Speeches Collection: Winston Churchill Speech - Blood, Sweat and Tears: Upon his very first entrance into the House of Commons as Britain's new Prime Minister on Monday, May 13, 1940, Winston Churchill only received a lukewarm reception from the assembly, while at his side, outgoing Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was heartily cheered.
Churchill then made this brief statement, which has become one of the finest call-to-arms yet uttered.
It came at the beginning of World War II when the armies of Adolf Hitler were roaring across Europe, seemingly unstoppable, conquering country after country for Nazi Germany, and when the survival of Great Britain itself appeared rather uncertain.
