Read through the most famous quotes from Anthony Eden
Most historians say that Eden completely dominated the British decision-making process in the Suez crisis. Eden's worldwide reputation as an opponent of appeasement a "Man of Peace" and a skilled diplomat was overshadowed in the second year of his premiership when the United States refused to support the Anglo-French military response to the Suez Crisis which critics across party lines regarded as an historic setback for British foreign policy signalling the end of British predominance in the Middle East. He was also Foreign Secretary for three periods between 1935 and 1955 including during World War II.
