“We cannot agree that an act of plunder which threatens the livelihood of many nations should be allowed to succeed.”

(Anthony Eden, 8 August 1956)

Anthony Eden had a privileged upbringing; he developed a passion for art, was a man of fashion and became the Clark Gable of British politics in the 20s and 30s. As well as being a First World War hero, he was Winston Churchill’s lieutenant for 15 years and seen as heir apparent. Eden’s own premiership however, only lasted two years due to the Suez Crisis. Can someone’s whole life be judged by one event?
