About the Author

Alan G.V. Simmonds is a lecturer in Modern History at the University of Hull, UK, specializing in British society during the First World War and the inter-war era. He has published on aspects of British housing policy since 1945.


"[Britain and World War One], written in jargon-free language easily accessible to undergraduates (and with meticulous proofreading) is unreservedly recommended for purchase in all university libraries and it should henceforth figure on all reading lists on British society and the First World War." - Antoine Capet, H-Albion (H-Net)

"An excellent integrated treatment of how the war affected British society ... these chapters are packed with data that provide often valuable insights into how the war was affecting Britain and British society ... A valuable read for anyone interested in Britain during the Great War or of war and society." - A. A. Nofi, StrategyPage, The New York Military Affairs Symposium

"Simmonds does a particularly fine job of analyzing the shift in party politics and the response of coalition government to the crises of food, production, housing, prices, and labor... This book should be required reading for those who want to understand shifting political alliances, the challenges of managing manpower (and womanpower), and the reluctant move to conscription." - Tammy M. Proctor, The Historian
