This chapter examines the problems British governor to Cyprus John Harding had in dealing with issues regarding Bishop Makarios and Ethnikí Orgánosis Kipriakoú Agónos (EOKA) leader Georgios Grivas. Harding believed that Grivas' exit from Cyprus was the most important factor that could lead to the cessation of hostilities. However, it appeared that the only way Grivas would leave Cyprus was in a coffin. When all of Harding's strategy failed, he resigned the governorship in October 4, 1957.
