Description
In 1945 Communism was on the march: the people of Bulgaria, Romania, Yugoslavia, and Poland all found themselves in the grip of the Soviets, the Red Army occupied a large German territory, and the Kremlin was fomenting unrest in Greece, France, and Italy. The following year, Winston Churchill made a trip to Fulton, Missouri, to deliver a speech entitled "The Sinews of Peace"—now known as the "Iron Curtain" speech—which served to define the dangers of Soviet totalitarian Communism. Philip White's history provides the background to that pivotal speech and its enduring legacy, which also serves as a late-career portrait of the iconic statesman who delivered it.

"Winston Churchill thought his 'Iron Curtain' speech the most important of a long and stormy career that was studded with vital speeches; it was certainly one of his bravest. Philip White has recreated the eight months between the Potsdam Conference at the end of World War II and the world-changing events in Fulton, Missouri, with impressive scholarship, a sure narrative skill and a fine eye for telling detail."—Andrew Roberts
