This is a compilation of some forty speeches, delivered mostly in the House of Commons between 1932 and March 1938. Mr. Churchill began, even before the advent of Hitler, to warn his countrymen against the danger of a Germany rearmed and determined to reassert her claims to world power. At the time he was not listened to; yet history has proven him remarkably correct in his prophecies.
