This chapter examines Hensley Henson's political views. It explains that Henson was not pleased with the peace that followed victory in World War 1 because he believed that the Treaty of Versailles failed to win moral assent. It suggests that though Henson preached the war as a crusade, that crusade ended in an unworthy conclusion: a treaty forced upon a beaten enemy, engineered out of hatreds and base ambitions.
