Stilwell–Churchill meeting, forenoon 1

1. Regarding this meeting, which probably took place at the British Embassy, the Stimson Diary for May 22, 1943, records the following observations: “Stilwell was going to see him [Churchill] this morning for a short talk and I coached Stilwell on how to act with him so as to get some punch into his remarks and not be afraid of him and, as it happens, it worked like a charm because when I met the Prime Minister he told me he liked Stilwell very much in what he had said to him in the morning.” (Stimson Papers)
