As the horrors raged in the trenches, and young men died in squalor by their thousands, back home in Britain a new national crisis had taken hold — one as unexpected as it was disturbing. It was December The serial adulterer Lloyd George was about to become Prime Minister. And the nature of the crisis? No less than a wide-scale collapse in public morality.
