About the Book

Prefaced by brief historical and biographical introductions, the examples in this book show how words can be used to inspire, to comfort, to move, or to enthuse even the most seemingly hard-bitten of listeners. From rallying cries such as Garibaldi's 'To arms, then, all of you!' and Chou En-lai's 'We must hold aloft the great red banner' to sombre statements such as Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's 'This time the struggle is for our freedom', each extract gives us an insight into the hardships of war and the fight for courage. Spanning over two millennia and with speeches from across the globe, We Shall Fight on the Beaches is a book to inspire and inflame the reader.
