Description: "The day will dawn, perhaps sooner than we now have a right to hope, when the insane attempt to found a Prussian domination on racial hatred, on the armoured vehicle, on the secret police ... will pass like a monstrous dream."
The only pamphlet printing of this very significant broadcast address by Churchill to the Polish people, delivered at the height of the Blitz in London. One of a series of pamphlets produced in New York by the British Library of Information (whose offices were located right up the street from where Chartwell Booksellers sits today), this is a virtually mint copy, and quite rare thus.
