Comments: Prime Minister Anthony Eden served as Prime Minister of Great Britain from 1955-1957, following the resignation of Winston Churchill. His short tenure as Prime Minster was overshadowed by the Suez Crisis, where he was unable to gain the support of the United States for his Anglo-French military response to the situation. He resigned shortly thereafter due to health reasons. During his lifetime he was a prolific author, authoring Days for Decision in 1949, The Eden Memoirs: Full Circle (1960), The Eden Memoirs: Facing the Dictators (1962), The Eden Memoirs: The Reckoning (1965) and finally Another World 1897-1917.
