Lord Lloyd and the Decline of the British Empire, by John Charmley

Regular price $6.99

Lord Lloyd's name may not be immediately familiar, although it appears in most biographies and histories of the 1920s and 1930s: as a friend of Lawrence of Arabia and of Churchill; as the governor of Bombay who locked up Ghandi and as the High Commissioner in Egypt who sent gunboats to Alexandria; as a diehard imperialist who shared the wilderness years with Churchill and then came to power in 1940- only to die of a rare blood disorder the following year; and as the only Cabinet Minister to fly on a bombing raid over Germany.
