On this day

The Roaring Lion

As the Germans continued to advance in World War II, Winston Churchill unleashed one of his finest speeches from the Canadian Parliament on this day in 1941 exclaiming, "They have asked for total war. Let us make sure they get it." Photographer Yousuf Karsh then captured one of the most iconic portraits of the lauded leader in the moments afterward.

Blast from the past
