Ten essays explore how the colonial warfare of the British Empire was represented to the folks back home, through such media as music and ceremony, music halls, juvenile literature, the hagiography of heroic myths, war correspondents, and battle paintings. They trace a continuity of cultural expressions through World War II and beyond, and delve into the attitudes of both the practitioners and observers. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's.
