Product details

Product description


Drawing on a prodigious range of national, local, communal and private sources, and casting her net widely throughout the whole United Kingdom, Catriona Pennell has provided a marvellously satisfying study of British (and Irish) popular responses to the outbreak of the war. (Keith Jeffery, Times Literary Supplement)

Historical myths are notoriously enduring, but that of a British "collective war enthusiasm" at the outbreak of war in 1914 should not survive after this excellent and important book, and should be replaced by a view of a nation accepting the need for a war of national defence. (A. W. Purdue, Times Higher Education)

Produce Fresh Fresh Promotion Promotion Fresh Fresh Produce Produce Promotion Promotion Promotion Produce fAqHOxwpTThis is a superb book on a number of levels (Dick Hunter, Due North)

combines meticulous scholarship, with narrative drive and subtle analysis. If you buy only one book on war this year make sure it is this one. (Robin Prior)

there is much to commend A Kingdom United as an examination of British and Irish responses towards the outbreak of war. (Richard Batten, War in History)
