During the three years following the Brussels congress, the British peace movement was to glide higher than at any time prior to the 1920s and 1930s, when hopes for a League of Nations and fear of the bomber were to be at their height. The period undoubtedly belonged to Richard Cobden, who not only committed himself to the peace movement in 1849, but later showed himself to be ready to risk his carefully husbanded political capital on its behalf.
