    Various shots of Winston Churchill addressing the gathering in Boston from rostrum. He is talking about start of the century, scientific achievements in the first half of the century, talks about the war 'four years of hideous mechanical slaughter', victory, Versailles Peace Treaty, and new dangers of communism, failure to destroy bolshevism at its start and current divisions.
