What was the significance of the Casablanca Conference?

It established the framework calling for an Unconditional Surrender of Germany, which was intended to announce the full commitment of the UK and the US to the war, to insure the USSR that his Allies would stand firm against Hitler, and to send a message to Hitler that any chance to negotiate a separate peace with anyone was futile. It also made an effort to unite the two bickering Free French leaders, Hernri Giraud and Charles de Gaulle. This last point failed.
