TWE Remembers: Winston Churchill’s “Finest Hour” Speech
The Germans would use the Luftwaffe, battle-tested in the Spanish Civil War and the blitzkrieg victories in Czechoslovakia, Poland, Belgium, and France, experienced and deadly. The British would defend themselves with the Royal Air Force, plus the grit and determination of over a million civilians who pitched in and served in the Home Guard, Observer Corps, and as firemen, rescue workers, ambulance drivers, and more.

Their Finest Hour
Eight months in which the Luftwaffe tried and failed to drive the RAF from the skies; eight months in which the Nazi fleet tried to starve Britain into submission. However, it also features the first gleams of light as the danger of invasion faded and the year closed with Desert Victory. The descriptions of these times and events, both desperate and hopeful, are drawn from the pen of the man who shaped them and who led his people in resistance to every challenge, bringing the period to a close with the first victorious counter-attack.
