The Second Washington Conference (March 9 – 15, 1942), did not have a code name because it was hastily called and was regarded at the time as a set of military staff conversations rather than a formal conference. The two delegations were led by the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and the American President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Immediately before the Conference started, Roosevelt held preparatory talks with Churchill in his home town of Hyde Park, New York on March 9 and 10.

The conference discussed if the British should accept Axis offers of peace in Europe. The Americans were keen to support the British in opening up a Front in France, but the British did not think that it was a feasible option and Churchill demanded American intervention against the Axis or he'd have no choice but to accept an armistice. Agreement was reached to start preparations for a meeting with the Axis (Madrid Conference).

Roosevelt and Churchill also held discussions with members of the Pacific War Council, King Peter II of Serbia and his Foreign Minister, and with Chinese representatives with whom they discussed strategic problems.
