Abstract

Exploring how mothers, fathers, widows, relatives and friends dealt with their experiences of grief and loss during and after the First and Second World Wars, this monograph analyzes how mourning affected men and women in different ways. Based on an analysis of letters and diaries, this study makes a significant contribution to understanding how people came to terms with the deaths of friends and family and examines the gendered dimensions of grief.
