It is during the Second World War that the United Kingdom and the United States of America succeeded in developing a very close partnership to the extent that the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called it « The Special Relationship between UK and USA ». This latter continued after the end of WW2 and was cemented during the Cold War. It is right considering that the close personal relationship between leaders of the two nations, USA and UK, helped tighten to a great extent that partnership, and that was very obvious between the British Prime Minister Thatcher and the American president Reagan. This paper will investigate how was the special relationship during M. Thatcher premiership and the US president Reagan, the levels of cooperation between the two, and how they succeeded in implementing the special relationship as was visioned by W. Churchill.
