  • Description

    Paris, France.

    MS. Britain's delegate in the United Nations Selwyn Lloyd (Minister of State) speaking at the UN meeting in Paris - natural sound: "To enable the refugees or exiles, to take part in the defence of the alliance of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, an organisation that will only undertake military operations and if there is aggression, against any of its members by the Soviet Union. And I repeat that what has been said by other people, purely other people already in this debate and before, that the Soviets have only themselves to thank for the creation of this North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. Had the Soviet Union chosen to continue the friendship alliance that existed during the last war and which we seek still to have, there would be no need for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. Mr Vyshinsky in his speech used a phrase which I particularly note, he talks about countries marching to victory under the communist banner. Well they're not going to march to victory over us, or our allies, and lets have no mistake....."

    Russian delegate Andrei Vyshinsky makes a passionate speech in Russian. He is questioning the principles upon which the decisions were made.

    American delegate Mike Mansfield speaks - natural sound. He refers to the Petrograd treaty of 1917 where Soviets underline their long term aims to overthrow the governments of the capitalist countries. He is saying that the US Government has nothing to apologise for giving the refugees from Russian tyranny the opportunity to join NATO and calls for vote. Several shots of the delegates voting.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
