Between 1957-1961, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harold Macmillan restored the 'Special Relationship' between the United States and Great Britain after the Suez Crisis of 1956 threatened to divide these longtime allies.

In this fascinating study, Geelhoed and Edmonds explore the most important diplomatic partnership of the 1950s.
