This chapter examines how Great Britain's peace settlement plan materialized at the Paris peace conference in France. The British delegation did not have an overall strategic view of the post-war world given the complex concerns of the Empire but the delegates were able to come through with basic principles which did not mutually contradict one another and which run right through British thinking on the post-war order. These principles were the New Europe, the balance of power, and imperial expansion.
