In December 1917, such was the scope of the German victory in Russia, that the War Cabinet had agreed that Britain and its partners would not be able to defeat Germany until 1919. In the ensuing months they did what they could to hasten the arrival of effective American military assistance in France, they attempted to recreate an eastern front, and they tried by propaganda and economic warfare to disrupt the cohesion of the Central Powers. The magnitude of the German advance in France between March and July 1918 did not induce ministers to make peace. But it did persuade them that victory would be further postponed.
