Overview

A brief but comprehensive survey of British society and culture during the First World War. George Robb concentrates not on military campaigns and battle strategies, but on the lives of ordinary Britons - how they responded to and were affected by the war, how they attempted to understand the conflict and to explain it to others, and how they have dealt with the war's legacies in the years since. Robb synthesizes the most recent work on the social and cultural history of the war, as well as reclaiming many forgotten popular cultural sources such as films, cartoons, advertisements and pulp novels.

    World War 1 in the eyes of homefront warrier

    At first glance, you look at the title and think hasnt WW1 been written enough. However this is a new and fresh look. Delving into the war as no other...looking at race,gender and the Homefront of England. There is not enough written about the changes of the ordinary person living through the blood bath of WW1. It is a must read for anyone interested in the Homefront, of WW1 and how it changed British Society.
