I liked Eisenhower, for the most part, but I always thought, from the time it happened, that this was a major screw-up.

It also put an end to the career of Anthony Eden's, Churchill's hand-picked successor, and helped tip the U.K. back to Labour. I'm not sure whether Eden was up to the job, but the Suez fiasco sure didn't help.

I was only four at the time so I appreciated this history lesson which always seems to be given barely a mention.
