The ‘Iron Curtain’ speech delivered by Winston Churchill at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri in March 1946 was to define the threat posed by the totalitarian Communist East in the aftermath of the Second World War and influence western policy throughout the Cold War. Focusing on the months between the Potsdam summit in July 1945 and the Fulton speech, Philip White traces the genesis of the speech in Churchill’s astute assessment of Stalin’s intentions and Soviet ambitions for the future.
