Before and After

Before and After

"We are fighting to defeat the most dangerous conspiracy ever plotted against the liberty of nations, care fully, insidiously, clandestinely planned in every detail with ruthless cynical determination."

—Lloyd George, August, 1917.

"The more one reads memories and books written in the various countries of what happened before August 1, 1914, the more one realizes that no one at the head of affairs quite meant war at that stage. It was something into which they glided, or rather staggered and stumbled, perhaps through folly, and a discussion. I have no doubt; would have diverted it."

—Lloyd George, Dec. 20, 1920.
