When It Was Armistice Day - Winston Churchill - November 1918

A short speech made by former First Lord Of The Admiralty Winston Churchill on the end of World War 1, November 1918.

<strong>Winston Churchill - little did he know in twenty years it would happen all over again.</strong>


This day, November 11th has come to be known as Veteran's Day, but it's reason for existence was to commemorate the end of World War 1 - the "War To End All Wars" when an armistice was signed on November 11th 1918 and the bloodiest, most inhuman (and pointless) war up to that point was finally over.

On that occasion, former First Lord Of The Admiralty the Right Honorable Winston Churchill recorded a short address to acknowledge the war just ended.

"We have won the great war, let us win the great peace."

If only.
