Page from speaking notes for Churchill's broadcast to the United States, October 16, 1938
In this key page from Churchill's notes for his broadcast to the United States in the aftermath of the Munich Crisis, his plea for greater American involvement in Europe is set out in his distinctive "psalm form." Churchill always spoke with a full set of notes, even though he committed most of the content to his remarkable memory.
