* Winston Churchill's famous speech
* "Never Give In" never, never, never...
* Harrow School - London, England
Page 4 contains one of the most famous speeches of World War II, certainly among the top speeches by British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill.
On October 29 Churchill visited his former school at Harrow and gave his "never give in" speech, very timely given the bombing of England by Germany at the time. The speech is not given here in full but rather the highlights are cited, text including: "...the lesson to be derived from our recent experiences is never to given in--never, never, never!" Not in any event, great or small, large or paltry...Never, never yield except to conviction and good sense. Never yield to force..." and more (see the hyperlink for the full text). Although many refer to this as his "never give up" speech, in fact he never mentioned that phrase. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Complete in 48 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint for institutional use. Minor damp staining near the spine, very nice condition.
