After several vicissitudes, including a debilitating stroke, Churchill met President Eisenhower and French Premier Joseph Laniel at the Bermuda Conference in December 1953. Churchill as always called for greater Anglo-American solidarity, but he was opposed to Eisenhower's professed willingness to use atomic weapons should the Communists once again launch an attack in Korea. This photograph shows the two leaders at the end of the meeting, as Eisenhower left Bermuda for New York.
