  3. Speech on Hitler’s Invasion of the U.S.S.R. • In March 1939, Britain and France started talks with the Soviet Union on possible cooperation against Fascist Germany. • At that time Britain under Chamberlain and France under Daladier were pursuing a policy of appeasement. • After three months’ fruitless negotiation, the talks were broken off. 王承君2006.9.6

  4. Then in order to protect itself, the Soviet Union signed the non-aggression pact with Hitler’s Germany on August 23, 1939. • On Sept. 1, 1939, Hitler invaded Poland. • On Sept. 17, Soviet troops also crossed the border and moved into Poland, taking 77,000 sm of territory. 王承君2006.9.6

  5. Wang Cheng-jun • The Russo-Finnish war began on Nov. 1, 1939 and ended in March 1940. • The Finns sued for peace and ceded an area of over16,000 sm to the Soviet Union. • In June 1940, Soviet troops occupied the three Baltic states (拉脱维亚,爱沙尼亚,立陶宛,芬兰)and part of Rumania. 王承君2006.9.6

  6. Before the fall of Poland, British intelligence officers managed to get hold of a German coding machine and a group of code-breaking experts, called the Bletchly Park group, soon discovered how the machine worked. • With the help of this machine, the British were able to decipher all German coded messages. 王承君2006.9.6

  7. So on June 6, the British had already learnt that Hitler was to attack Russia and so passed on a warning to the Soviet Union, which was unheeded. • On June 20, two days before the invasion, Churchill worked on a speech to be broadcast to the world when the invading forces rolled into Russia. • The speech was carefully composed, full of grave themes and weighty arguments. • Churchill polished the text on June 22, 1941 in his Elizabethan manor at Chequers. 王承君2006.9.6
