Winston Churchill's Last Campaign

This chapter discusses the Berlin conference, the East-West Trade, and the debate about the H-bomb. It looks at the Berlin conference, which managed to come to its predicted conclusion without upsetting the Germans or the French. The chapter then shows that the East-West trade was initially refused by the Americans, but the Europeans pointed out that it would be able to provide important commodities such as timber and grain, while allowing them to minimize the need for dollars. The chapter also highlights Winston Churchill's concerns over the dangers of a nuclear conflagration, which was caused by the debate on the hydrogen bomb or H-bomb.

Keywords:   Berlin conference, East-West Trade, H-bomb, hydrogen bomb, Winston Churchill, nuclear conflagration
