A fascinating examination of the traumatic nature of women's experience during the First World War, and the ways in which they sought to mediate their attraction to a fixed female identity with their desire for radical social change.

Synopsis:

In this study, Sharon Ouditt examines the traumatic and constantly shifting nature of women's experience during the World War I. By examining propaganda, journals, women's magazines, unpublished memoirs and contemporary fiction, the author reveals the challenge to feminine identity which the War demanded and attempted to restrict. Rather than achieve sudden and unproblematic independence through their entry into the public sphere of work and politics, women found themselves having to construct complex ideological strctures in order to legitimate their role as "temporary" citizens - whether as crusading nurses, landworkers or pacifist activists. At once historically committed and theoretically informed, this text should appeal to anyone interested in the ways in which women managed their involvement during the First World War, in the relationship between literature and history, and in the ambiguity and flexiblity of "femininity" in the context of dramatic social change.

From the Back Cover:

In a period of high idealism, and 'titanic illimitable death' many women were determined to play an active role alongside their male compatriots. In this fascinating work Sharon Ouditt examines the traumatic nature of women's experience during the Great War, and the complex ideological structures they confronted and engaged with in order to legitimate their position in the public world.
