World War 2

Declaration of war: PM Neville Chamberlain announces Britain is at war
Transcript of announcement
I am speaking to you from the Cabinet Room of 10 Downing Street. This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German government a final note, stating that unless we heard from them – by 11 o’clock – that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us.  I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received and that, consequently, this country is at war with Germany.
