Popular images of post-war women represent them welcoming home the soldiers, but this volume asks, What happened next?The contributors use a range of methodological approaches to encourage the reader to question traditional historiography, the nature of the historical evidence, the process of memory, and the disparities between official discourse and personal narrative, and between written, visual and oral accounts.
