Arcadia Conference
   1941-1942
   Arcadia was the code name given to the meeting between British prime minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt and their respective military staffs in Washington, D.C., from 22 December 1941 to 14 January 1942, during which they agreed on their joint strategy for World War II. A unified command was established with a Combined Chiefs of Staff with a supreme military commander in each theater of war. The Allies also agreed that a “Germany first” policy would be pursued, while in the Pacific the first objective would be to prevent further Japanese expansion. The meeting also led to the issuing of the Declaration of the United Nations on 1 January 1942 that committed its signatories to uphold the principles of the Atlantic Charter and not to conclude any separate peace agreement with the Axis powers.
