Course Description

‘The War to End War’ is a well-worn cliché, robbed of its original impact by later horrors. We will examine how the British People responded to the first modern war. Why did so many young men volunteer for the army? How were civilians affected by the absence, injury and loss of loved ones, as well as the privations of a war economy? And to what degree did the war permanently alter popular attitudes to life and the social order?
