Show Notes

  • Today we’re going to look at an important episode in history, when the survival of Western civilization was under threat.
    • In the summer of 1940, Germany was preparing to invade Britain by attacking Britain’s shipping capacity, pulverizing its coastal towns, crippling its Air Force, and demoralizing the British people. But the people of Britain would not be cowed. Led by Winston Churchill, they threw their hearts into the war effort and endured a punishing blitz on their capital city, London. And about a thousand of their young men flew in the Fighter Command of the Royal Air Force—and courageously, miraculously repelled the German Luftwaffe.
  • We’ll take some personal lessons from this inspiring history—about which Churchill said, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”
