Unfit for Heroes: Reconstruction and Soldier Settlement in the Empire Between the Wars
Over 5 million service personnel were demobilized by Great Britain and her four self-governing dominions after World War I. For many their re-adjustment to civilian life was difficult and full of bitter disappointment. This book studies one of the principal solutions advanced by the reconstruction planners - resettlement of returning veterans on the land.
