This study examines fictional recreations of the First World War in the interwar years and the phenomenal success of one play, Sheriff's Journey's End. The author challenges the notion of a 'modern' memory generated by the First World War by arguing that middlebrow texts formulated a set of images and ideas that eclipsed the wartime upheaval and imputed conservative 'meanings' to the collective memory.
