Summary
"Sources for every conceivable aspect of the war are systematically covered, from government decision-making and the military conduct of the war in all arenas to home front issues such as food supply and the management of morale. Some generally unknown or unused records are detailed for the first time, on topics such as attitudes to the conflict in British universities, war finance, and labour. The thematic arrangement and extensive index also reveal at a glance where to research key areas such as gas warfare, military intelligence, the role of women, and strategic bombing." "This guide is the essential companion to in-depth study as well as a goldmine of information for anyone interested in wartime history."--BOOK JACKET
