He presided over the creation of the first UN peacekeeping forces in Egypt and the Congo and personally intervened to defuse or resolve diplomatic crises. His second term was cut short when he died in a plane crash aged 56 on September 18th 1961 whilst en route to cease-fire negotiations during the Congo Crisis
