    Michael Graham Fry(Author)
The First World War was the defining event of the twentieth century and the Paris Peace Conference the most important such conference. The four years following the war helped determine whether the world would find peace or face another war. In December 1916 David Lloyd George became Prime Minister of Britain and came to dominate wartime diplomacy and postwar international affairs. Although he resigned in October 1922 and never held high office again, he was the pre-eminent liberal statesman of the twentieth century. Arguably Lloyd George was the equal of Winston Churchill as a war leader and indisputably superior as a creative, ingenious, and visionary statesman.

Michael Graham Fry is Professor Emeritus of International Relations at the University of Southern California and was a Fellow of the Royal History Society, United Kingdom. He received his PhD in international history from University of London. Fry has written and edited nine books, contributed to several monographs, and published widely in journals in Britain, Canada, France, Israel, and the United States. The review in The Times Literary Supplement of his first book, Lloyd George and Foreign Policy: The Education of a Statesman, 1890-1916, described it as the seminal work, the point of departure for all other scholars. And Fortune Fled completes his study of Lloyd George, foreign policy, and international relations.

Review Text

  • By C. Wrigley on 9 September 2012

    Over 30 years after Michael Fry wrote his excellentstudy of Lloyd George and foreign policy before 1914, he has produced its successor[[ASIN:0820474061 And Fortune Fled: David Lloyd George, the First Democratic Statesman, 1916-1922 (Studies in International Relations)]. As with the earlier book, it is very thoroughly researched and is a very impressive work. It deals with his premiership of nearly six years, dealing with the winning of the First World War, the peacemaking that followed and various international difficulties involving Bolshevik Russia, Turkey,Germany and elsewhere. It is an outstanding contribution to twentieth century British History.
