To End All Wars - Talk: "War without End": A History of Pain and the First World War
Save event

Pain and suffering: they are the legacies of war. How did men and women during the First World War understand the pain that was inflicted upon them during those five terrible years? What about the pain they inflicted on others? 

In fact, the effects of wartime wounding did not end with the armistice. After the First World War, millions of men returned home with distressing physical and psychological wounds. Many lived with their afflictions for decades. What did this mean for the post-war history of modern Britain? 

Joanna Bourke is the author of The Story of Pain: From Prayer to Painkillers (2014).
