“For us, arrived at this milestone in the war, we can say: One continent redeemed.”
This is truly the first appearance of Churchill’s marvelous speech to the U.S. Congress on May 19, 1943, issued by the British Information Services as a press release immediately following Churchill’s delivering the speech.
We have never seen another like this, printed on long, legal-size paper, with the full text of the speech in typescript. The pages are mildly browned with age, and twice folded, otherwise in very good condition.
