This e-book therefore specializes in these middle-class English males who didn't sign up for the defense force no longer as a result of ethical or political objections to warfare, yet for a number of different (much extra universal) purposes, significantly exemption, age, kin tasks or actual unfitness, wondering no matter if and to what quantity practices, relationships and identities have been disrupted via the reviews of conflict at the domestic front.

Civvies specializes in 4 inter-linked components that have been significant to so much English middle-class men's lives, and the place the demanding situations of warfare at the domestic entrance compelled middle-class males to reconsider traditional understandings of acceptable, 'manly' behavior: the warfare attempt, paintings, kin and relationships, and intake and rest. The ways that middle-class males navigated their approach via those parts of lifestyles and negotiated the pressures and hardships of warfare at the domestic entrance, in addition to their transferring relationships with 'others', both warring parties or civilians, are all considered.

Overall, this e-book questions no matter if, at a time whilst powerful hyperlinks have been solid among manliness and armed forces carrier, middle-class civilian males discovered themselves instantly condemned to 'unmanly' prestige, or did they enhance alternative routes of being 'manly' civilians?
