Greatest Speeches of the 20th Century: Voices in Time Series

Schlessinger Media- Greatest Speeches of the 20th Century: Voices in Time Series on DVD

Throughout the 20th century, charismatic world leaders used the power of speech to communicate difficult truths, galvanize citizens to fight for independence and to unite nations to defeat foreign enemies. The motivational words of Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela instilled confidence during times of great crisis, and helped garner mass support for their visions of the future, while the tortured logic and twisted propaganda of Adolf Hitler inspired others to commit unspeakable acts of violence. The 13-part documentary series Greatest Speeches of the 20th Century: Voices in Time provides students with engaging historical analysis of selected portions of a wide variety of famous speeches. Combined with wonderful period footage and informed expert commentary, viewers will gain a unique perspective of world history through the voices of those who shaped it.
