Comprising over 250 speeches, including Churchill's call for a united Europe and, in one of the most famous orations of the Cold War period, Churchill condemned the Soviet Union's policies in Europe and declared, 'From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent.' Churchill's speech is considered one of the opening volleys announcing the beginning of the Cold War.
