This is an analytical survey of Britain in the era of the Great War, focusing particularly on the period 1907-1922. It questions the common assumption that, because the war had a devastating impact on the British people, its social consequences must therefore have been equally lasting. The book argues that prewar social structures and attitudes proved surprisingly resilient and the innate conservatism of all classes in Britain ensured that postwar Britain was little changed as new economic economic and technological circumstances allowed.
