Abstract

Lord Inverchapel was a key figure in British foreign policy and diplomacy during Great Britain's twilight as a great power. His early diplomatic service postings included Berlin, Washington, and the Middle East, most notably as ambassador to Iraq. He served in China and the Soviet Union during the Second World War and as ambassador to the US after the war. He played a significant role in the founding of NATO and the implementation of the Marshall Plan. This study is based on a close examination of the huge Inverchapel archive, including a vast collection of his private papers.
