• Short Summary

    American President Roosevelt says that the war will not stop until the total victory.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "TOTAL VICTORY - SAYS PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT".

    United States of America (USA).

    American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt sitting in front of microphone delivering a speech (natural sound): "The first crack in the Axis has come. Mussolini came to the reluctant conclusion that the jig was up. He could see the shadow of the long arm of justice, but he and his Fascist gang will be brought to book, and punished for their crimes against humanity. No criminal will be allowed to escape by the expedience of resignation. Our terms to Italy are still the same as our terms to Germany and Japan - unconditional surrender. Ahead of us are much bigger fights. We and our Allies will go into them as we went into Sicily together and we shall carry on together. In the Pacific we are pushing the Japs around from the Aleutians to New Guinea. There too, we have taken the initiative, and we're not going to let go of it. We shall not settle for less than total victory."
