Speeches are used to commemorate points of history, and inform the general public of the product of their history but what makes a speech so impacting on it’s audience? Rhetorical devices give speeches and works of literature a way that can convey feelings or ideas to a viewer. When addressing during times of war or chaos, people such as Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, and Winston Churchill used these terms to better connect with their audience. Without these tools of the english language, dialogue and literature would be all the more dull and unappealing. However, with these useful instruments, writers and speakers can better communicate through some of the many rhetorical devices.
Both of the speeches produce passionate tones, which is a great quality for leaders. When Using anaphoric such as, " spent,spent, spent, and spent... ", Thatcher conveys the message that spending is very important to her; thus, creating a passionate tone. Churchill's way of showing a passionate tone is through his diction. " ...with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us.", not only does he us diction here ,but he also uses the word God to show that God will be with us ,and God will help us. This also shows his passionate relationship with his religion.

Chamberlain reminded the people of what they did so far and brings out their pride through his statement believing that, "we are an army out to set others free (Chamberlain 11). " Chamberlain's description of the army that the mutineers were in made them feel their importance in forming a free country. This becomes a moral boost which makes them truly believe that joining the army for a greater

The profundity of his impact on the audience depended on the combined effectiveness of factual representation of ideas and emotional
This was the first time that another leader called out the Soviet Union for being a threat to the European values and it was labeled “The Iron Curtain Speech”. Churchill understood that even though the war was over the west could not just let the Soviet Union attempt to destroy the European way of life and that he could not sit by and let them just try to put a stronghold on Europe by spreading communism.
