    DescriptionThe Great War and the British People is a classic study of the impact of war on the men who fought and on the communities they defended. It provides the authoritative account of the 'Lost Generation', in terms of mobilization, casualties, and memory, and contrasts that history with another history, one of massive improvements in the well-being of the home population. A war of unprecedented carnage was also a war which improved the heath of the British people. Between 1914 and 1918, warfare and welfare thus came together in entirely surprising ways.

    Review quote
    "Dr. Winter has written what will surely come to be regarded as a true classic in the writing of twentieth-century British Social History."--"History Today" "One of the virtues of this book is to demonstrate that . . . quite complex things can be made accessible to the less numerate in clear, direct and highly readable words."--"New Society" "J.M. Winter's extremely nutritious book . . . will prove well nigh indispensable."--"The Times Educational Supplement"
