Mon Jun 12 2006 13:11 War council politics is more like junior high than anything else: One thing I have discovered while working on this paper is it is impossible to say, Lloyd George and Churchill generally agreed with one another and disagreed with Lord Grey and Asquith. There is no generally speaking. Lloyd George agreed with Asquith on this issue but disagreed with him on almost every other one, and Lloyd George and Grey wanted the same thing (sometimes) but for different reasons. Lloyd George and Churchill agreed on Serbia but disagreed on the proper way for doing it. Six months later they all changed their minds, and came home & wrote in their diaries mean things about the person they were supposedly "closest" too. And this is all within the context of one tiny issue of policy. Well perhaps not tiny... All in all I am glad I have not chosen to make political history my main field. What I am wanting is a well-done history a la Macmillan's Paris 1919. All the ones that exsist are too specific on the wrong topics for me.
