He has not attempted to add one more to the long catalogue of war histories. But he saw the war, at the point and at the centre, from so many angles and in such intimate touch with the mainsprings of action that his personal story gives a picture of the war as a whole which is of compelling and challenging interest.Even more important as a contribution to the inner history of the post-war years are the chapters which describe the authors part in the break up of the Lloyd George coalition and in Mr.

Baldwins ill-timed rush election on the issue of protection, and, more particularly, those which deal with his own work as Secretary of State for the Colonies and for Dominion Affairs. A story of great achievements ends with the failure of the Baldwin Government to seize a great opportunity in Imperial affairs, or to make any real attempt to grapple with the terrible problem of unemployment, due to the Prime Ministers weak inertia in face of the stubborn opposition of his free trade Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Churchill.So much for the bare bones of what is, above all, the intensely personal story of a consistent, forceful purpose to shape the course of our national and imperial life, a story illustrated by many vivid sketches of men, places and events, and illuminated by judgments and criticisms springing from a political philosophy and a directness of character which must claim respect even if they challenge controversy.
