The Darkest Hour: Winston Churchill

On the eve of World War 2, within days of becoming prime minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill faced the inevitability of trying to defeat a powerful enemy—Nazi Germany. Great Britain’s "Darkest Hour" is the subject and title of a new film released today nationwide.

In a radio broadcast earlier in 1940, Winston Churchill encouraged a nation using words from John 14: “The day will come when . . . victorious nations . . . will plan and build in justice, in tradition, and in freedom a house of many mansions where there will be room for all.” In 1941 he wrote: “The more closely we follow the Sermon on the Mount, the more likely we are to succeed in our endeavors.”
