With the outbreak of European war the whole course of his life is altered and within weeks he is transformed into a great war minister. But his imaginative views on strategy bring him into conflict with the professional warlords. Eventually his dissatisfction with the higher directions of the war leads to an act of revolt which brings down the Asquith government and results in his own appointment as Prime Minister.
