We Shall Fight on the Beaches: Churchill’s Speech on the Dunkirk Evacuation

Is a Keynote by Next Week Possible? Find Out How.

Listen to Churchill’s moving speech “We Shall Fight on the Beaches… We Shall Never Surrender”

On May 26, “Operation Dynamo “–the evacuation from Dunkirk began. The seas remained absolutely calm. The Royal Air Force–bitterly maligned at the time by the Army–fought vehemently to deny the enemy the total air supremacy which would have wrecked the operation. At the outset, it was hoped that 45,000 men might be evacuated; in the event, over 338,000 Allied troops reached England, including 26,000 French soldiers. On June 4, Churchill reported to the House of Commons, seeking to check the mood of national euphoria and relief at the unexpected deliverance, and to make a clear appeal to the United States.
