Harold Nicolson was a member of the British delegation. His book is in two parts. In the first he provides an account of the conference, in the second his diary covering his six month stint. There is a piquant counterpoise between the two. Of his diary he writes, 'I should wish it to be read as people read the reminiscences of a subaltern in the trenches. There is the same distrust of headquarters; the same irritation against the staff-officer who interrupts; the same belief that one's own sector is the centre of the battle-front; the same conviction that one is, with great nobility of soul, winning the war quite single-handed.
As a first-hand account of one of the most important events shaping the modern world this book remains a classic. Harold Nicolson was a man of manifold talents: a diplomat, politician, journalist, broadcaster, historian, biographer, diarist, novelist, lecturer, literary critic, essayist and gardener. Perhaps most celebrated for his Diaries reissued by Faber Finds in their original three volumes , they run the risk of obscuring the excellence of his other books. He was a member of the British delegation to the Versailles Peace Conference in In he was appointed a Junior Minister in Churchill's wartime government.
