• Short Summary

    Minister of Information, Duff Cooper, speaks after Nazi invasion of Holland & Belgium.

  • Description

    Several, most C/U shots of the Minister of Information Duff Cooper as he addressees the nation after German invasion of Holland and Belgium in May 1940.

    Great propaganda speech calling for sacrifices and unity in a fight for total destruction of the worst enemy ever - Nazi Germany. He grinds his teeth as he speaks - quite effective. There is a short discrepancy in the middle of the speech - it is impossible to say whether the speech is complete or not.

    Mr Cooper walks out of the building and drives away.

    Natural sound only.
