Edwin Marcus. Co-pilots, 1955
A ghostly figure ("Churchill's Training") steadies the helm as Anthony Eden succeeds Churchill as Britain's Prime Minister. The two men had been colleagues since the 1930s, when they had worked together to move British policy away from appeasing Hitler and the Nazis. Eden, who served as Churchill's Foreign Minister in the 1940s and 1950s, was also the husband of Churchill's niece Clarissa.
