Description: ANTIQUE Two Volume WWI Auto-biography Of David Llyod George. "War Memoirs Of David Lloyd George" by David Lloyd George In Two Volumes. HARDCOVER ND circa 1938 Odhams Press (England) New edition reprint. Exactly as shown in the listing scan(s). Nice Collectible hardcover copies. COMPLETE TWO VOLUME SET. "A new edition of Lloyd George's account of the WWI which was originally published in 6 volumes between 1933-36. Written with assistance from Liddel Hart the "War Memoirs," are a remarkable achievement, which bear comparison with Churchill's later account of WWII. Based on a vast array of private materials, in them Lloyd George refought the old battles of wartime with zest, to confound critics and justify himself. There are vivid portraits of individuals such as Grey, Kitchener, and Wilson, and many brilliant insights. The purpose was in large measure polemical, to heap criticism on Haig, Robertson, Jellicoe, and other old adversaries, to argue the case relentlessly for a more peripheral military strategy, and to denounce the sterile bloodbath of the trenches. These volumes are central to the long, ongoing debate on the strategy and ethics of WWI. They were also implicitly arguing the case for a totally different approach towards Germany and international affairs in the 1930s. Their purpose was the present as much as the past." Illustrated.
