Look at the assertion:

"Lord Northcliffe, the owner of The Times and the Daily Mail, blamed Kitchener (Secretary of State for War) for the recent death in action of his nephew. [4]"

If this refers to V. S. T. Harmsworth, and I think it does, then someone has their chronology out, because in May, 1915 Vere was still alive. He was killed in action at the Battle of the Ancre in November 1916.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:38, 6 August 2014 (UTC)[reply]

'Supplies and factories in British Commonwealth countries, particularly Canada, were reorganized under the Imperial Munitions Board, which ensured adequate supplies of shells for the remainder of the war.' seems somewhat over done considering that insufficient shells were available for the Somme in 1916, and those shells that were available were not primarily high explosive. I'm changing this to 'which attempted to ensure' unless anyone has objection. Roche-Kerr 21:56, 2 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Replacing 'increase of decisions' in First Para[edit]

Because it doesn't make sense, I'm changing this part of the last sentence in the first para: 'a significant factor in the increase of decisions for a new Prime Minister during the political crisis of 1916.' I think this may be an adequate replacement: 'a significant factor in the forcing out of Asquith as Prime Minister, in favor of Lloyd George, during the political crisis of 1916'.
