Len's Summary: Fourteen essays examining the pivotal May and June 1911 meetings of the British Committee of Imperial Defense involving self-governing Dominion Prime Ministers and senior military officers of Canada, Newfoundland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa which took place on the margins of the coronation of King George V. At this conclave, Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Gray made clear that Germany was a potential enemy and that Great Britain would probably not stand aside in a continental war.
