Abstract

This work focuses on the experiences of women in Europe during the transition from war to peace. Popular images of post-war women represent them welcoming home the soldiers, but this volume asks, "What happened next?" What did the end of the war mean for women? How was the relationship between public and private altered by the war? The contributors use a range of methodological approaches to encourage the reader to question traditional historiography, the nature of the historical evidence, the process of memory, and the disparities between official discourse and personal narrative, and between written, visual and oral accounts.
