Anthony Eden (1897 - 1977) served as Foreign Secretary in the United Kingdom from 1935 until 1938 and was the first Foreign Secretary to resign, an action he took in protest against what he perceived as a cowardly response towards the increasing fascist presence in Europe. He succeeded Winston Churchill as Prime Minister of the UK in 1955. He was made Earl of Avon in 1961. The book Another World is an account of his experiences as a soldier.
