A Clean Peace and National Reconstruction : A Speech Delivered by the Right Hon. H. H. Asquith, K. C., M. P., at the Town Hall, Birmingham, on December 11th, 1917 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Clean Peace and National Reconstruction: A Speech Delivered by the Right Hon. H. H. Asquith, K. C., M. P., At the Town Hall, Birmingham, on December 11th, 1917 The first, and I believe by far the most dominating and persistent, misconception of our aims is that the ulterior, though unavowed, object of the Allies is not merely to vanquish, but to humiliate, to impoverish, and in the end to annihilate, as a factor in the further and fuller movement of humanity, Germany and the German people. It has, of course, to be admitted that neither here nor in America has any such purpose ever been formulated or even suggested. I go back to my own summary of our aims at the Guildhall in November, 1914. I said then that we should not sheathe the sword until the military domination of Prussia is wholly and finally destroyed.
