Atlantic meeting

by H. V Morton | 04 August 2016
Category: European History
Synopsis
In August 1941 Winston Churchill & President Roosevelt met secretly on HMS The Prince of Wales, moored just off the coast of Newfoundland. H.V. Morton & Howard Spring were invited to accompany the Churchill & his entourage on this trip, which was not without its hazards. The Atlantic Treaty, whilst not achieving all that Churchill had hoped for, was a key document in the development of the war & post-war strategy. Churchill had hoped that at the resolution of the meeting America would join the war during the summer of 1941 but this was not to be. They joined the war in December 1941 following the Japanese attack on the US base at Pearl Harbour. H.V. Morton's account of the trip was not released for publication until 1943 & subsequently numerous documents have been made available at the National Archives. A new appendix lists these together with a chronology & detailed bibliographies of the key players in the discussions.
