Churchill’s second major address to the public and the House of Commons came at a time where a possible Nazi Germany invasion looked to be in the future and allies France appear to be all but defeated and dropping out of the war. It was very dark times for the British people, however Churchill’s policy has remained the same. Victory at all costs. He gave a speech on June 4th 1940 aimed to increase the spirits of his people and to insure to them that his policy has not changed from when his previous address was given, where he declared the goal of “victory, however long and hard the road may be”. During his speech given on June 4th, later entitled “We Shall Fight on the Beaches” Churchill detailed several things, including a military disaster, possibility of France falling out of the war and a possible Nazi invasion, however later in his speech, after talk of all the unfortunate events happening right before them, Churchill insures eventual victory and uplifted the British hopes. The most powerful moment in the speech was given too directly address to falling out of British and French armies from France after the German takeover. Churchill reiterated that their goal of victory has not changed and they will never surrender "We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing-grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender!".

His positivity and unchanged goal will create a stimulus in the public that will keep their hopes and influence them to never give up and never surrender to the incoming Nazi Germany invasion. Churchill uses many methods of communication in his speeches, however the powerful moments he delivered in this speech were deemed most effective in influencing his people to never give up and to fight to the end and victory will be theirs.
Winston Churchill’s speeches “Blood, Toil, Sweat and Tears” and “We Shall Fight on the Beaches” took place in the time period surrounding the Battle of France.
