The First World War and British Military History

This chapter discusses the renewed interest in World War I during the 1960s. This surge of interest resulted in the production of relevant films and television series, the publication of books, and theatre productions. During this period, the British official records of the war were also opened to researchers and the respectability of military history as an academic discipline increased. One of the principal features of the works published in Britain and other Commonwealth countries during this period is that collectively they give far greater prominence to the views and experiences of junior officers and other ranks.

Keywords:   World War I, military history, television series, British war records, historiography
