Lloyd George summarized the terms Britain sought as ‘restitution, reparation, and guarantee against repetition’. His government never contemplated making a negotiated peace in December 1916. After two years of fighting, it had come to power committed to continuing the war and to intensifying Britain's efforts to secure victory. Too many men had been killed and too much treasure had been expended to allow the new administration to end the war on the basis of the status quo.
