In October 1911, Winston S. Churchill was an accomplished young Liberal politician who, as the newly appointed First Lord of the Admiralty, still wore his ambition and emotion on his sleeve. Robert L. Borden was the new Canadian Prime Minister, less emotional and much older than Churchill. They became companions in an attempt to provide naval security for the British Empire as a naval crisis loomed with Germany. Their scheme for Canada to provide three Dreadnought battleships for the Royal Navy as part of an Imperial squadron was hotly debated by the Canadian Parliament and rejected by the Senate. It was one of the most divisive debates in Canadian parliamentary history. Churchill invested considerable time and effort in trying to deliver the scheme and even believed he might need to resign when it failed. The decision had great implications for the future, leading to the crises in shipbuilding foreshadowing the outbreak of WW1.

About the Author:

Martin Thornton is Senior Lecturer in International History and Politics at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom. He gained his Ph.D. in International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science. His publications include biographical studies: Sir Robert Borden: Canada. Makers of the Modern World ; Times of Heroism, Times of Terror: American Presidents and Foreign Policy During the Cold War, 1945-1991; and he is editor of Nancy Astor's Canadian Correspondence, 1912-1962.

Review:

“A book on Anglo-Canadian naval relations is a rare beast and, as such, Martin Thornton’s work is to be welcomed. It examines in some detail the Naval Aid Bill put forward by Robert Borden and the Conservatives in December 1912. ... the book is a useful addition to the Canadian side of this important episode and therefore deserves two cheers from Canadianists ... .” (Tony McCulloch, BJCS – British Journal of Canadian Studies, Vol. 29 (1), 2016)
