Reports on the war: a brief review of the speaker's previous addresses. The fight in the months ahead. Events over the last two months. The miracle that we have come through. Not having to give up our institutions and liberties. Being proud of our performance. How we are to do better in the future. Owing more to the homespun courage and tough fiber of a great many ordinary people rather than the political prophets and pundits. The confidence of the English people and the conditions under which they have been living and fighting. Some illustrative examples. The experiment of a Labor Government in Britain. Some characteristics and feelings of the British people. Britain's part in the war against Germany. Going on to the end to defeat Germany and Japan. One or two things we must do for the future. Striving for what we believe to be right and prepared to fight for it if need be.
