Abstract

This dissertation is focussed on how the Great War shaped family life and wider society both
during the war and in the immediate years afterwards. It encompasses a range of topics all relating
to the main study, the family. This dissertation will discuss how the family was disrupted by the
onset of war by how both men and women’s role were altered in society, with men leaving for war
and women going to work in their place, among other areas of discussion. This dissertation will
also focus on how the family continued to be disrupted by the war even after the war had ended.
This includes how mass unemployment and economic instability hit Britain leaving large amounts
of working-class families in strife, and how men returning home from war were not the same men
who left for war.
