This PDF document provides additional information about one of Mr. Churchill's most famous speeches delivered in Fulton, Missouri on March 5, 1946. It was the first public speech that used the expression, “The Iron Curtain”. This speech, officially named the Sinews of Peace or more often referred to as the Iron Curtain speech, announced that the Cold War had already begun with the aggressions by the Soviet Union in Eastern Europe. Churchill sought to alert leaders in the U.S. and the world that war had resumed in Europe even before the end of World War Two.
