Description:
 Tonight, our imagination will whisk us to the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City. The date is March 15, 1946. Over the course of an hour, Sir Winston Churchill will describe his tastes and hobbies. He will recall the trials and difficulties of World War II, especially the dark days of 1940 and 1941, when England faced off against Hitlerís Nazi forces virtually alone. Churchill will also recall the unconquerable will of the British people as well as the friendship that he formed with President Franklin Roosevelt during the years of the war. In the final minutes of his speech, Churchill will warn his American audience of the growing Soviet threat in Eastern Europe.
