    One thought on “Fighting Different Wars: Experience, Memory, and the First World War in Britain

    1. AskHistorians

      Examining the lived experiences of men and women, together, in WW1. Her chapter on nursing, how nurses were perceived, and how nurses figure into the historical myths of the war, is particularly excellent.

    2. Steelwhisper

      Too revisionist for comfort. It all depends on which accounts you select for what you want to say. This selection is very one-sided and defends warfare way beyond what people truly said or were allowed to say.
