Title of thesis

  • Emotional interactions between male family members during the First and Second World Wars.
  • This thesis proposes to explore male family relationships by analysing the emotional response to their wartime experiences of fathers, sons and brothers. How did war affect and shape these masculine bonds and to what extent were private emotions moulded by familial and societal conventions surrounding authority, affection, and grief.
