Description
What happened when millions of British servicemen were "demobbed"—demobilized—after World War II? Most had been absent for years, and the joy of returning home was often clouded with ambivalence, regrets, and fears. Many of these soldiers faced both practical and psychological problems, from reasserting their place in the family home to rejoining a much-altered labor force. Drawing on personal letters and diaries, newspapers, novels, and films—and featuring 16 pages of black and white photographs—Alan Allport's history illuminates the darker side of the homecoming experience for ex-servicemen, their families, and society at large.
