Almost continuously in print for twenty-five years, and a classic of post-1960 writing, The Deluge describes life on the home front, analysing the social changes that made Britain of the 1920s a vastly different place from the Britain that went to war in 1914. This new edition contains a long introductory essay on 'War and Social Change in Twentieth-Century Britain' in which the author, in the light of the most recent research, summarises his latest reflections, and also presents an up-to-date and useful bibliography.
