What is the meaning and inspiration for our new #PadillaCigars Finest Hour ? This movie trailer gives a clue. You can find the full documentary at www.spitfire.film in the summer of 1940 as Hitler’s Nazi Germany finished conquering Europe. England that stood alone to face Nazi Germany would be an easy victory for Hitler. He turned out to be very wrong. England, the last democracy standing and led by her cigar wielding and newly appointed British Prime Minister...Sir. Winston Churchill. Churchill would rally and inspire his people to hold the line in that dark time. When the German Air Force bombed England repeatedly in the summer of 1940. All that stood to stop Nazi invasion was the young British Royal Airforce. America in July of 1940 was neutral during this early stage of World War Two. Churchill would later go on to say about the out numbered British pilots who defended their island home. “That never was so much owed by so many to so few. “ And now here is Churchill’s Finest Hour speech: What General Weygand has called the Battle of France is over ... the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be freed and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth[e] last for a thousand years, men will still say, "This was their finest hour."
