This fourth and final volume of John Grigg's magnificent biography opens with Lloyd George's succession to the Premiership in December 1916, when Britain faced starvation and defeat through the German U-boat campaign, its allies France, Russia and Italy were tottering, the Liberal Party was bitterly divided and unrest in Ireland was growing.
Worst of all, military chiefs regarded themselves as at least the equals of the government. To resolve these crises required ruthlessness, political genius and leadership of the highest order.
In this thrilling book we see one of Britain's most resourceful Prime Ministers in brilliant action, steering his country to victory.
