This chapter details Cohen's new position as “counselor to the ambassador,” following the appointment of John G. Winant as the American ambassador to Great Britain. The initiative for Cohen's appointment came from Winant himself. Given Winant's lack of direct foreign policy experience, the idea of having an assistant with Cohen's connections and talents was appealing. Their personal relationship was also cordial, and Winant had tremendous respect for Cohen's abilities.

Keywords:   Benjamin V. Cohen, John G. Winant, American ambassador, counselor
