A Faulty Peace and Broken Promises. 1918-22

This is the first of three lectures which looks at the period in British History from the end of The First War to the start of the Second.


Synopsis


  • Differing reactions to news of The Armistice . 11.11.18

  • Did our modern world begin in 1918?

  • 'The War to End All Wars' & 'A Land Fit for Heroes to Live in', were both to prove hollow

  • An uneasy and uncertain time that ended with the fall of Lloyd George in 1922

  • The international scene proved equally awkward

  • 1914-18 War marks a divide in history. We turn to the poet & author Edward Thomas to illustrate this
