Â€œThe chief aim of this pamphlet is to stress the vital importance of not only winning this war, but also to make certain that we shall win the peace. It is also vitally important that the four great human freedoms proclaimed, by the president of the United States of America, be maintained i. E. Â€“ freedom of speech and expression, freedom of every person to worship God in his own way, freedom from want freedom from fear […] The Ukrainian case for freedom and independence is clearly explained in the following speech of Mr. Anthony Hlynka, a Member of the Dominion Parliament of Canada, who is the Ukrainian descent and is perfectly acquainted with the struggle of Ukrainians for Independence.
