LEARNING FROM

Winston Churchill

Image

“I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. . .. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: it is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, 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.”1

WINSTON CHURCHILL (1874–1965) ON MAY 13, 1940,
IN HIS FIRST SPEECH AS BRITISH PRIME MINISTER
