Grigg John

Oxford University Press

Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George were the two outstanding British politicians of the first half of the twentieth century. Their careers overlapped and interacted to a large degree. During the early years of the twentieth century, they formed a partnership as radical reformers that decisively affected the course of British history at home. Both during the two world wars, they were colleagues who seemed to be joint, or alternative, men of destiny. Their association began in earnest when Churchill left the Conservative Party and joined the Liberal Party. In the way Churchill chose to execute his change of sides in Parliament, he emphasized a specific intention to ally himself with Lloyd George. It was most fortunate for Britain, and perhaps also rather fortunate for the world, that Churchill and Lloyd George lived when they did and were willing, for some years, to deploy their talents and energies in concert.
