This volume provides the fully edited and annotated diaries of the scholar, soldier and diplomat Harold Temperley (1879-1939), covering his travels in the Balkans, his work for British military intelligence during the First World War, and his role in the Versailles peace conference. As a trained historian, he was aware of the importance of recording events as they unfolded, and regarded his diary as a means of preserving a non-official record. As such, this edition of Temperley's diaries offers scholars a direct and hitherto neglected perspective on some of the most important events that shaped twentieth-century Europe.we were not at war! du Fournet is sacked for LeBon a this at present secret.147 Meanwhile troops have been conveyed from ... 151 Herbert Albert Laurens Fisher (1865a1940), historian and Liberal politician; Fellow new college, 1888a 1913;anbsp;...
