Page "Dwight D. Eisenhower" Paragraph 79
In November 1956, Eisenhower forced an end to the combined British, French and Israeli invasion of Egypt in response to the Suez Crisis.
Simultaneously he condemned the brutal Soviet invasion of Hungary in response to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.
Therefore he publicly disavowed his allies at the United Nations, and used financial and diplomatic pressure to make them withdraw from Egypt.
Controversy surrounds Harold Macmillan, who met with Eisenhower on September 25, 1956, then relayed to Prime Minister Anthony Eden the false impression that Eisenhower promised to support an invasion.
In 1965 Eisenhower explicitly defended his strong position against Israel, Britain and France in his memoirs.
