Description - British Culture and the First World War by George Robb

In this brief but comprehensive survey of British society and culture during the World War I, 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 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.
