British Literature of the Blitz interrogates the patriotic, utopian ideal of the People's War by analyzing conflicted representations of class and gender in literature and film. Its subtitle - Fighting the People's War - describes how British citizens both united to fight Nazi Germany and questioned the nationalist ideology binding them together.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'One of the great achievements of [Miller's] books is the insistence on the material realities of World War II that challenged the moral consciousness of the world... A major implication of [Kristine Miller's] studies is that the next step in research on World War II British literature should relate writing from the home front to that which engages Britain's global roles in this catclysmic war.' - Phyllis Lasner, Northwestern University

'...a fascinating look at a prominent but little understood chapter of European modernity...an important contribution to the study of the modern literature on war.' - Modern Fiction Studies
