This study presents an overview of the public and private ideas of Britain national identity in times of war, how they were arrived at and the extent to which they were shaped by gender. She also reflects on how men in the armed forces were encouraged to regard themselves as being bound together in unity by masculinity and common experience, while women remained individuals with prime responsibilities to home and family. This monograph also dives into how the popular memory of World War II was the dominant factor contributing to a sense of national identity in the Falklands War of 1982 and the Gulf War of 1991.
