Geography and Time: The Debate on British Strategy, 1916–1918

(p.1) Introduction
The Strategy of the Lloyd George Coalition, 1916–1918

David French

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a description of the events prior to Lloyd George government' assumption of power in December 1916. It then sets out the purpose of the book, which is to show that the essence of the strategic debate in Britain was not between ‘easterners’ and ‘westerners’. Two such clear-cut groups did not exist within the policy-making elite and few if any of its members even used these terms. It also considers the military policy of the new government.

Keywords:   First World War, military policy, military strategy, Lloyd George
