Catriona Pennell

  • The first comprehensive public opinion survey - at a time when such surveys did not exist - of British and Irish popular reactions to the outbreak of the First World War
  • Draws from a vast array of the diaries, letters, journals, and newspaper accounts by the very people who experienced the war in its first dramatic five months
  • Challenges assumptions about the outbreak of war and contributes to latest research into the First World War
  • Pays special attention to the question of Ireland, showing that the majority of Irish people supported the war and were united in the British cause
