Example text

23 On 20 December, Hull ordered Cunningham to return to the United States, which he did in January. 24 He managed to irritate both de Gaulle and the State Department by his attitude. On the other hand, he had clearly done a great deal of work and gathered a lot of information. As a result of his trip, the War Department became more and more interested in establishing a base at Pointe Noire, and this was finally done the following year. The Cunningham Mission, however, was eclipsed by the Free French invasion of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.

Crises occurred repeatedly in that region and were fuelled by personality conflicts between General Sir Edward Spears - who, as we will remember, had brought de Gaulle to London - and almost every French official in the area. However, there was much more to the problem than a simple question of individuals. To begin with, there was the strategic significance of the Levant which was of immense importance to the British who otherwise had few interests there. The British and Free French had moved into this area initially because the Germans were using it as a base to attack the British.

However, strangely enough, what seemed to irritate Hull even more than the actual invasion was Churchill's speech in defence of de Gaulle in Ottawa a few Free France and the United States 29 days after the invasion. In a conversation with the British minister in Washington, Sir Ronald Campbell, Hull showed that his anger was greater against the British than against the French, and he criticised the British Government for 'fomenting against the United States for British benefit the bitter agitation against this country over the islands'.
