Little World Wars: Violence and Experience in the British Empire, 1885-1981
My dissertation is the first academic history of a diverse group of Britons who took part in multiple conflicts in the British empire, from small wars around the African continent to the First World War. Their stories help us to re-consider the relationship of WWI to those imperial wars that came before it, but also to understand the centrality of war and violence to the maintenance and expansion of the British empire, particularly in Africa.
