My thesis examines depictions of a 'people's war' in British documentary and feature films during the Second World War. It explores how different filmmakers interpreted the concept to produce both coalescing and contradictory visions of British society at war. It questions the implications of this, both for our understanding of the 'people's war' concept itself, and for how propaganda worked in the British wartime democracy. This work is possible thanks to a Durham Doctoral Fellowship.
