The Trial of the Kaiser

William A. Schabas

Oxford University Press

The Attorney General, F. E. Smith, persuades an initially uncertain Imperial War Cabinet of the wisdom of putting Kaiser Wilhelm II on trial. When Georges Clemenceau and Vittorio Orlando meet David Lloyd George in London at the beginning of December 1918, they agree on trial of the Kaiser. The Italians are hesitant, however, with the Foreign Minister opposed to prosecution. The Americans do not send a representative to the meeting. Lloyd George writes to Woodrow Wilson, who is on board a ship on his way to France, but the American President prefers to wait before taking any decision about a trial.
