Lloyd George's Visit to Hitler, 1936 (Robert Whealey, USA, 07/21/17 4:43 am)

I would like to see an endnote for the 1936 visit, when David Lloyd George said "Heil Hitler."  (See Eugenio Battaglia, 20 July.)  I read David Lloyd George's report to the FO. He did praise Hitler in a somewhat humorous way. But I don't recall any slogan such as Heil Hitler.

JE comments:  Google "Lloyd George praises Hitler" and you get a minefield of apologist websites.  It's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff (more precisely, manure).  Did LG ever say "Heil Hitler" in earnest?  We do know he came back from the 1936 encounter glowing with Fuhrer enthusiasm.  In an essay he called Hitler "Germany's George Washington."

Remember the British Tommies' classic ditty, "Lloyd George Knew my Father, Father knew Lloyd George," sung to the tune of "Onward Christian Soldiers"?  Some say it referred to LG's reputation as a womanizer.

  • Was Lloyd George an Appeaser in 1936? (Robert Whealey, USA 07/23/17 4:53 AM)
    Lloyd George in 1936 indeed was an appeaser, certainly different than he had been in 1916 to 1922.

    The purpose of LG's 1936 trip was to tell Hitler that Great Britain was not going to return former German colonies to the Third Reich.

    JE comments:  I hope Robert Whealey will follow up on this.  Did Hitler ever ask for Great Britain to return its colonies--presumably, the ones in Africa it lost after WWI?  I don't recall ever reading about this, even in A. J. P. Taylor's arguably revisionist The Origins of the Second World War.
