The Centenary of the Anglo-French Treaty, 1919-2019 by Rob Johnson

Dr Robert Johnson, Director of CCW, writes on the centenary anniversary of the Anglo-French Treaty

The Anglo-French Treaty was signed by Lloyd George and Clemenceau on June 28th, 1919, the same day as the signature of the Treaty of Versailles. The two were regarded as inextricably linked. For France, it represented the fulfilment of an important bond in its security in Europe, and for Britain, it was the logical conclusion to its wartime relationship.
