This audiobook includes the actual recording of speeches from six famous British politicians: James Ramsey MacDonald, King George V, King Edward VIII, Stanley Baldwin, Neville Chamberlain, and King George VI.

James Ramsay MacDonald, the first ever labour prime minister of the United Kingdom, delivers a 1929 political broadcast discussing peace and unemployment. King George V issues the first royal Christmas Day broadcast in 1932, which started an annual tradition. In 1936, King Edward VIII broadcasts to the nation and the Empire, explaining his decision to abdicate the throne so that he might marry his love, American socialite Wallis Simpson. Stanley Baldwin, a conservative politician who dominated the British government between the two world wars, give a 1937 speech extolling the virtues of British life versus German Nazi life. Neville Chamberlain, a conservative prime minister best known for his appeasement foreign policy—in particular, his signing of the Munich Agreement in 1938 which conceded the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Germany—speaks about the Munich Agreement in 1938. And finally, King George VI, who was portrayed in The King’s Speech by Colin Firth, delivers a broadcast on D-day, June 6, 1944.
