Item description for Eden (British Prime Ministers of the 20th Century) (Life&Times) by Peter Wilby...
Anthony Eden was a Conservative and prime minister from 1955-57. Eden was foreign secretary under Baldwin at the age of 38 and twice in Churchill's governments. Long Churchill's heir-apparent, he finally succeeded him as prime minister in 1955, but had not made his mark before being overwhelmed by the Suez Crisis, which damaged Britain's relations with the USA and spelled the end of the country's status as a first-rank power in its own right. The dramatic failure of this military adventure led to a collapse in his already frail health and to his resignation.
