The Man Who Took Britain to War

‘I hate war!’ These were the words uttered by Sir Edward Grey in 1914 after persuading the House of Commons that war was inevitable. Did the hapless Foreign Secretary allow the world to sleepwalk into global conflict? Or was he a genuinely good man faced with an impossible task? The veteran politician Tam Dalyell interviews Michael Waterhouse, author of Edwardian Requiem, an authoritative biography of Grey.
