Lloyd George became Prime Minister at a crucial point in the history of this country. Britain had reached the apogee of its military power but was facing a new and most deadly threat to its survival at sea. At home the Liberal party to which Lloyd George belonged was bitterly divided. Unrest in Ireland, with all its dangerous implications, was a growing menace. Grigg's account reveals the extent of Lloyd George's innovations in government and their impact on traditional Britain. Here we see one of the most resourceful leaders of modern times in brilliant action, transforming his country in pursuit of victory.
