Winston Churchill's Last Campaign

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the steps Winston Churchill took to propose a summit. It was part of Churchill's plan to achieve détente, despite the reservations of other world leaders. It looks at the Foreign Affairs debate from May 11 to May 12, the Berlin Uprising, and the moment when Churchill presented his Cabinet, the FO, Britain's European allies, and the Americans with a fait accompli. It is noted that Churchill also suffered a stroke, but that this never dampened his hope of ending the Cold War once and for all.

Keywords:   summit, détente, Foreign Affairs debate, Berlin Uprising, fait accompli, Cold War, Winston Churchill
