Unfit for Heroes

WAS £25.99 £20.79

Product description

Over 5 million service personnel were demobilized by Great Britain and her four self-governing dominions after World War I. For many their re-adjustment to civilian life was difficult and full of bitter disappointment. This book studies one of the principal solutions advanced by the reconstruction planners - resettlement of returning veterans on the land.;This text not only examines the dominions' attempts to meet the daunting challenges of the post-war world, but also the political manoeuvres and economic initiatives which formed the basis of a new period in Anglo-dominion relations, for soldier settlement was seen as the economic cornerstone of a new and dynamic post-war society. The participation of British veterans provided the foundation for the more ambitious empire migration strategy developed by the imperial architect Leo Amery.;This study explores important social and economic aspects of the transition of Anglo-dominion relations between the onset of World War I and the beginning of the Great Depression.
