Module overview

The Second World War ended more than seventy years ago, but the echoes and memories of the war still permeate modern British society, culture and politics. This course will explore the history of the Second World War in Britain, from appeasement to the election of the 1945 Attlee government, to think about how and why the war holds such an important place in Britain’s national psyche.
