A number of people, both in this country and in the United States, have recently urged me to bring the story up to date. With the Prime Minister s permission, I have therefore collected all his speeches from May, 1938, down to the present day. This volume sees the fulfillment of all the darkest fears to which Mr. Churchill gave utterance in the earlier volume. By the time this set of speeches begins the situation had already become so desperate that less emphasis is placed upon our laggardly rearmament than in the earlier speeches. With the danger so close upon us, and with so little time to expand our defenses, Mr. Churchill clearly thought it more useful, in the hopes of deterring the aggressor, to dwell upon such elements of strength as we possessed rather than to exhibit our weakness nakedly to the world.

It carries us past the tremendous and mournful events at Munich to the inevitable and plainly pointed sequel in Prague. And so we are brought relentlessly stage by stage to the challenge of war which Mr. Churchill had so often urged could, by timely arrangements and adequate preparations, have been warded off. Thereafter, as First Lord of the Admiralty and, later, as ix x INTRODUCTION his speeches naturally become more official. Despite this, and the in evitable pressure of business, I do not think that they will be found to lack the literary and dramatic quality of those which he made as a private Member. Indeed, they constitute a contemporary history of the war which is as lively as it is authoritative; and, so far as contempora
