The Explorers' Club, № CCCLIV

The Early Cold War, Part III: "The Sinews of Peace" (A.K.A. the "Iron Curtain speech") (5 March 1946) by Winston Churchill (1874-1965) & the Iran Crisis/Iran-Azerbaijan War (1946).

"From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic an 'iron curtain' has descended across the continent."

Commentary: O, but I do so love maps!
