The Great War maintains a tenacious grip on the public imagination and also continues to draw historians to this period that is variously used as a symbol of modernity, as the midwife of the 20th century and as an agent of social change. A great many works have been written in response to previous work, as the original sources were fading away into the background. Consequently, errors remained uncorrected, once certain interpretations were considered common knowledge, and myths about the war and its aftermath emerged and remained unchallenged. Taking a fresh look at the Great War, this volume returns to the original oral, textual, pictorial, and artistic evidence and looks at how historians have used -- or abused -- this evidence over the years.

MEDIA REVIEWS

..".a series of ten stimulating essays on differing aspects of World War One, loosely, but not exclusively, linked around the theme of the role played by women. As such it is an important collection, which has already gone into a second printing. While some of the essays sum up the current state of play after decades of historical controversy, others are pioneering ventures, opening up new areas for further research. As the editor says quite accurately in her introduction (p. 8): 'the essays in this book bring something fresh to debates about the war'."
Nordost Archiv

..".the student of the Great War and gender is well served, and Braybon's introduction provides an excellent overview of the various historiographical themes, whilst her footnotes provide a useful guide to further reading."
History

"Readers will not be disappointed by this scholarly, yet accessible, collection of essays."
Centre for First World War Studies
