This collection of fourteen, academically rigorous and accessible
chapters explores the British Home Front in the last 100 years
since the outbreak of WW1. The wide range of case studies include
war widows allowances, Landgirls, the role of factory inspectors in
WW1 and canal boat women, national savings, Guernsey evacuees and
clothes rationing in WW2. The meaning and images of the British
home and family in times of war are interrogated in the past and in
contemporary culture to challenge prevalent myths of how working
and domestic life shifted in times of national conflict. This
volume is intended to encourage a reappraisal of the place of the
Home Front in British conceptualisations of war and conflict.
