This was the year in which colonial power took a battering. France suffered at
the hands of the Viet Minh in Indochina and faced riots in Algeria, Britain
battled the Mau Mau in Kenya, and five senators were shot by Puerto Rican
nationalists in the United States. Meanwhile, Colonel Nasser, soon to plunge
Britain into the Suez Crisis, became prime minister of Egypt.
In other news, Senator Joe McCarthy’s career came to a sordid end this
year. In Britain, the economy improved, rationing finally ceased, the
recently-crowned Queen Elizabeth II continued her glorious tour of the
Commonwealth realms and Roger Bannister ran his four-minute mile.
1954 was certainly a year to remember..
