Summary
  • "This book re-evaluates Lloyd George's part, crucial but enigmatic, in the 'lost peace' of Versailles. Each chapter examines a separate episode between 1919 and 1940. The first chapters review Lloyd George's protean role at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, his strategy of 'making Germany pay' and the part played in it by Lord Cunliffe, ex-Governor of the Bank of England; the causes and consequences of Lloyd George's abortive guarantee treaty to France; and the emergence at the conference of the phenomenon of 'Appeasement' - the 'worm in the bud'. The final chapters reassess the two episodes commonly considered most damaging to Lloyd George's reputation: his visit to Hitler in 1936 and his bids to halt World War II after the fall of Poland and France
  • The author sees Lloyd George as both mercurial and consistent: brilliant and volatile in method, but constant in his aim of furthering Britain's interests through his personal diplomacy."--Jacket
