Summary/Abstract: The author focuses his attention in this study on the role Lloyd George played in shaping the relation between Britain and the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in 1917-1918. The article highlights the repeated attempts of the British Prime Minister to conclude a separate peace with the Dual Monarchy after Emperor Karl initiated a peace offensive in early 1917. The author relies primarily on the War Memoirs of Lloyd George and analyses the Sixtus-mission from a British point of view. The study also covers the secret Smuts-Mensdorff talks in December 1917.
