This chapter discusses Winston Churchill's letter to President Eisenhower, which justified his campaign for détente. It also looks at Churchill's slow recovery after his stroke, and shows that although he was physically weak, he was mentally in remarkable shape. It discusses the Washington Conference, the fall of Beria, and even a new battle over the notes that were issued from Moscow.

Keywords:   Winston Churchill, President Eisenhower, détente, Washington Conference, Beria, Moscow
