 About the Book 

This study provides a detailed critical and historical survey of British literary culture in wartime. Concerned as much with war as with writing, it explores the significance of cultural representations of violence to the administration of the war effort. A theoretical account of the symbolic practices which connect military violence to policy provides a framework for analyzing imaginative and documentary literature in its relations both to propaganda and to Peoples War ideals of social reconstruction.
