Dr Dawn Berry, University of Oxford. She holds both Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Alberta, and has recently completed a doctorate in History at the University of Oxford supervised by Professor Margaret MacMillan. She is now finalising a monograph on the American occupation of Greenland during the Second World War. She has worked on Arctic-related issues for nearly ten years and is the joint editor of a volume on the governance of the North American Arctic due to be published next year.
This paper examines the ways in which British failures in the early stages of the Second World War raised doubts about the ability of the Royal Navy to protect the North Atlantic. It argues that these concerns led Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King and President Franklin D Roosevelt to radically alter North American defence strategies, particularly in the Arctic, which significantly affected the governance of the region and the management of its resources during and after the war.
