 My speech will be historical thus it shall give out some

of the brief events that happened during the world
war. I decided to go with history because I love it a lot
and I like when I learn new things that had happened
in the past.

 Even though massive tracts of Europe and lots of vintage and

famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo
and all of the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not f lag or
fail. We shall pass on to the end, we shall combat in France, we
will fight on the seas and oceans, we will combat with developing
self-assurance and developing power in the air, we will shield our
Island, whatever the price may be, we will fight at the seashores,
we shall fight on the touchdown grounds, we shall combat in the
fields and inside the streets, we shall combat in the hills; we shall
never give up, and even if, which I do no longer for a second
agree with, this Island or a massive part of it had been
subjugated and starving, then our Empire past the seas, armed
and guarded by the British Fleet, could keep on the battle, till, in
God’s suitable time, the New World, with all its strength and
might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the vintage.

 How ever there are a lot of effects that had been brought by the

World War. With 39 million fatalities in Europe alone, World
War II (WWII) was one of the main transforming events of the
20th century. Six years of ground combat and bombardment
resulted in significant physical capital destruction. Many people
were compelled to leave their homes or give up their property
without receiving any payment in order to relocate to other
areas. Even in Western Europe, which was quite rich, periods of
famine grew more frequent. Long periods of family separation
resulted in the dads of many children being lost. Many people,
especially small children, would see the horrors of war firsthand
as fighting and bombardment occurred right where they lived.
There were atrocious crimes against humanity. The political and
economic structures of many nations would be irreversibly
changed as a result of WWII.

 Churchill, W. S. (2013). The second world war. A&C
