About the Book

There has been very little previous attention paid to Scottish civilians during the Great War, but, as is revealed here, Scotland had its own unique experience. Of multi-disciplinary interest for academics, and of broad general interest too, this is the only single-volume study of the impact of the Great War on Scotland. Topics include conscientious objection, voluntary recruitment, press coverage, gender and the war, and the Scottish Highlands and the war.
