The First World War was the defining event of the twentieth century and the Paris Peace Conference the most important such conference. The four years following the war helped determine whether the world would find peace or face another war. In December 1916 David Lloyd George became Prime Minister of Britain and came to dominate wartime diplomacy and postwar international affairs. Although he resigned in October 1922 and never held high office again, he was the pre-eminent liberal statesman of the twentieth century. Arguably Lloyd George was the equal of Winston Churchill as a war leader and indisputably superior as a creative, ingenious, and visionary statesman.
Michael Graham Fry is Professor Emeritus of International Relations at the University of Southern California and was a Fellow of the Royal History Society, United Kingdom. He received his PhD in international history from University of London. Fry has written and edited nine books, contributed to several monographs, and published widely in journals in Britain, Canada, France, Israel, and the United States. The review in The Times Literary Supplement of his first book, Lloyd George and Foreign Policy: The Education of a Statesman, 1890-1916, described it as the seminal work, the point of departure for all other scholars. And Fortune Fled completes his study of Lloyd George, foreign policy, and international relations.
