              The First World War's centenary generated a mass of commemorative activity worldwide. Officially and unofficially; individually, collectively and commercially; locally, nationally and internationally, efforts were made to respond to the legacies of this vast conflict. This book e...xplores some of these responses from areas previously tied to the British Empire, including Australia, Britain, Canada, India and New Zealand. Showcasing insights from historians of commemoration and heritage professionals it provides revealing insider and outsider perspectives of the centenary. How far did commemoration become celebration, and how merited were such responses? To what extent did the centenary serve wider social and political functions? Was it a time for new knowledge and understanding of the events of a century ago, for recovery of lost or marginalised voices, or for confirming existing cliches? And what can be learned from the experience of this centenary that might inform the approach to future commemorative activities? The contributors to this book grapple with these questions, coming to different answers and demonstrating the connections and disconnections between those involved in building public knowledge of the 'war to end all wars'.

              Public remembrance of the Great War of 1914-1918 continues to flourish, with each new generation adding its own interpretations and understandings of the most influential event of the twentieth century. The last participants may have died, but their war remains alive. Scholars co...ntinue to try to make sense of what, in hindsight, still may appear to be, at best, a major caesura and, at worst, a social and cultural disaster. This book is a collective biography of 984 men and young boys who were among the last soldiers to volunteer for service in World War I but differs from previous studies in it is based on quantitative evidence of a scholarly nature, not just on the war years, but on the decades before.

              War Time: First World War Perspectives on Temporality

              War Time: First World War Perspectives on Temporality (Hardback)

              The International Society for First World War Studies' ninth conference, `War Time', drew together emerging and leading scholars to discuss, reflect upon, and re-consider the ways that time has been conceptualised both during the war itself and in subsequent scholarship. War Time...: First World War Perspectives on Temporality, stemming from this 2016 conference, offers its readers a collection of the conference's most inspiring and thought-provoking papers from the next generation of First World War scholars. In its varied yet thematically-related chapters, the book aims to examine new chronologies of the Great War and bring together its military and social history. Its cohesive theme creates opportunities to find common ground and connections between these sub-disciplines of history, and prompts students and academics alike to seriously consider time as alternately a unifying, divisive, and ultimately shaping force in the conflict and its historiography.a With content spanning land and air, the home and fighting fronts, multiple nations, and stretching to both pre-1914 and post-1918, these ten chapters by emerging researchers (plus an introductory chapter by the conference organisers, and a foreword by John Horne) offer an irreplaceable and invaluable snapshot of how the next generation of First World War scholars from eight countries were innovatively conceptualising the conflict and its legacy at the midpoint of its centenary.a

              While the First World War has conventionally been understood as a military clash of empires, Cultural Encounters during the First World War argues that it can be re-conceptualised as a turning point in the history of cultural encounters. The volume of essays seeks to break fresh ...ground by focussing on processes of encounter and exchange among combatants and non-combatants, soldiers and civilians, men and women of different national, ethnic and racial backgrounds between 1914 and 1918 and analysing their relationship to questions of wartime intimacy and propaganda, nationalism, race and identity.

              In 1914 almost one quarter of the earth's surface was British. When the empire and its allies went to war in 1914 against the Central Powers, history's first global conflict was inevitable.a It is the social and cultural reactions to that war and within those distant, often overl...ooked, societies which is the focus of this volume. From Singapore to Australia, Cyprus to Ireland, India to Iraq and around the rest of the British imperial world, further complexities and interlocking themes are addressed, offering new perspectives on imperial and colonial history and theory, as well as art, music, photography, propaganda, education, pacifism, gender, class, race and diplomacy at the end of the pax Britannica.

              Aerial Propaganda and the Wartime Occupation of France, 1914-1918 explores the combined role played by the French and British Governments and Armies in creating and distributing millions of aerial newspapers and leaflets aimed at the French population trapped behind German lines.... Drawing on extensive research and French, German and British primary sources, the book highlights a previously unknown aspect of psychological warfare that challenges the established interpretation that the occupied populations lived in a state of total isolation and that the Allied governments had no desire to provide them with morale support. Instead a very different picture emerges from this study, which demonstrates that aerial propaganda not only played a fundamental role in raising morale in the occupied territories but also fuelled resistance and clandestine publications. This book demonstrates that the existing historiographical portrayal of the occupied civilian as an uninformed victim must be replaced by a more nuanced interpretation.

              Although civilian internment has become associated with the Second World War in popular memory, it has a longer history. The turning point in this history occurred during the First World War when, in the interests of 'security' in a situation of total war, the internment of 'enem...y aliens' became part of state policy for the belligerent states, resulting in the incarceration, displacement and, even murder, of hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. This pioneering book on internment during the First World War brings together experts from throughout the world to investigate the importance of the conflict for the history of civilian incarceration.
