Abstract

In one of the more dramatic moments at the height of the Syrian crisis, an angry de Gaule, humiliated by the Churchill's brutal attitude, turned to Duff Cooper, the British ambassador in Paris and said: "We are not, I admit, in a position to open hostilities against you at the present time. But you have insulted France and betrayed the West. This cannot be forgotten." [from the article]
