This review is from: The Deluge: British Society and the First World War (Paperback)
The importance of this work is summed up in its title "The deluge". Marwick's thesis is that the first world war transformed British society forever. He especially concentrates, which is refreshing, on the life of ordinary people, and not on the details of military operations.
Not to be missed, in my humble opinion. A useful counterweight to recent books which have attempted to defend British military leaders, and to dismiss questions of social inequality.
