“David Lloyd George is a fascinating historical figure. A man who began life in a small Welsh village and ended up becoming Prime Minister and an immortal figure in British political history. Credited as the man who 'Won' the First World War and brought about great social changes there is a big difference between Lloyd George the polititian and Lloyd George the private man.
I first learnt about Lloyd George in school, even back then I recall being impressed at what he acheived during his political career. What he achieved in public office was taught to me but nothing much about the man himself. This book fills in alot of the gaps showing the reader that behind the confident, powerful polititian was a man with an Insaciable sexual appetite who kept a mistress for many years, spent as little time at home with his family as possible, was often at odds with his own party and, in the end, seemed to lose all the principals who made him such a formidable radical in the first place.
I came away from the book with more respect for Lloyd George. A man who certainly wasn't perfect (who is?) but undoubtably did alot of good for Britain whilst in power.”
