William Mulligan reviews Nigel Keohane‘s book The Party of Patriotism: The Conservative Party and the First World War for politico.ie. With the current electoral situation in the UK it’s interesting to look back at some of the issues which shaped the Conservative Party in the early years of the 20th century.
From William Mulligan’s review:
The “seminal catastrophe of the twentieth century” was how the American diplomat and historian, George Kennan, described the First World War. However from the perspective of the Conservative Party, the war was a moment of regeneration and renewal.
