This second edition of the classic bestseller by J.M. Winter, originally published by Macmillan in 1985, includes a new and up-to-date introduction. This was the first major study to highlight the paradox that a conflict that killed or maimed over two million men, also created conditions which improved the health of the civilian population. Examining both the war and its aftermath, Dr Winter surveys not only trends in population and the impact of the conflict on an entire generation, but also, more profoundly, the meaning of the literature of the period.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Reviews of the First Edition:

'Dr Winter has written what will surely come to be regarded as a true classic in the writing of Twentieth-century British Social History.' - History Today

'One of the virtues of this book is to demonstrate that...quite complex things can be made accessible to the less numerate in clear, direct and highly readable words.' - New Society

'J. M. Winter's extremely nutritious book...will prove well nigh indispensible.' - Times Educational Supplement
