Lessons in Statecraft: "The Sinews of Peace"
Special Webcast Saturday, March 5
Did the "Iron Curtain" speech provide a blueprint for how the United States and its allies would wage the Cold War?
How does Churchill's famous warning about the threat of Soviet Russian aggression from 76 years ago resonate today as the world turns its attention to the crisis in the Ukraine?
To explore these and other related questions, join us on Saturday, March 5, at 11am CST for a special and timely webcast on the the anniversary of Winston Churchill's 1946 "The Sinews of Peace" address at Westminster College.
Sandra L. and Monroe E. Trout Director and Chief Curator Timothy Riley will examine and explore Churchill’s positions on the United Nations, post-war military preparedness, the "special relationship," and the legacy of the "iron curtain" in today’s geopolitical climate.
