    London.

    Track of Winston Churchill's speech 'Desert War'.

    Churchill speaking - natural sound: "We had victory... a remarkable and definite victory, a bright gleam that caught helmets of our soldiers and warmed and cheered all our hearts. Rommel's army has been defeated, it has been very largely destroyed as a fighting force. Now this is not the end, for it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is perhaps the end of the beginning... but remember those roads of France and Flanders, crowded not with fighting men but their helpless refugees, women and children fleeing with their pitiful barrows and household goods, to whom such merciless cruelty was reaped, I have, My Lord Mayor, I trust as you... this position, but I must say I could not help feeling that what was happening... was only justice reclaiming their rights."
