"This book seeks to question the modern idea that the Great War was regarded as a futile waste of life by British society in the disillusioned twenties and thirties. Through a detailed study of the City and East London, localities of widely varying religious, economic and social complexion, it shows how both the survivors and the bereaved came to terms with the losses and implications of the Great War and how communities as diverse as the Irish Catholics of Wapping, the Jews of Stepney and the Presbyterian ex-patriate Scots of Ilford shaped the memory of their dead and created a very definite history of the war. The work concentrates on the planning of, fund-raising for, and erection of war memorials and then goes on to show how those memorials became a focus for a continuing need to remember, particularly each year on Armistice Day."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
