- Program Description
“Britain after World War I was like a once rich relation, fortune gone, laboring to keep up appearances, hiding shabbiness under ceremony and political and economic crisis under bustle and motion. Her domains slipped from her one by one, some, like Ireland, actually cutting loose, others repudiating so much imperial control that after World War II the whole Empire had become a tenuous federation. In the thirties while it continued to deceive itself, it could not deceive a new breed of tough, cynical, buccaneering dictators whose blackmail won continuous concessions until appeasement could go no further and Britain was drawn into the vortex of still another World War.”
