Cultural History of Modern War MUP

  • Focuses on a different and hitherto neglected aspect of the First World War
  • The only in-depth study of the experiences of middle-class men who did not volunteer for the armed forces at the outbreak of war, and often sought to avoid or postpone conscription too
  • The focus on gender and masculinity makes it of interest not only to war studies scholars, but also to gender, cultural and social historians too
  • Accessible to an undergraduate and a more general readership
  • Publication will take place shortly before the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War
