Public Schools And The Great War

by Anthony Seldon, Public Schools And The Great War Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Public Schools And The Great War books, In this pioneering and original book, Anthony Seldon and David Walsh study the impact that the public schools had on the conduct of the Great War, and vice versa. Drawing on fresh evidence from 200 leading public schools and other archives, they challenge the conventional wisdom that it was the public school ethos that caused needless suffering on the Western Front and elsewhere. They distinguish between the younger front-line officers with recent school experience and the older 'top brass' whose mental outlook was shaped more by military background than by memories of school.??The Authors argue that, in general, the young officers' public school education imbued them with idealism, stoicism and a sense of service. While this helped them care selflessly for the men under their command in conditions of extreme danger, it resulted in their death rate being nearly twice the national average.??This poignant and thought-provoking work covers not just those who made the final sacrifice, but also those who returned, and?whose lives were shattered as a result of their physical and psychological wounds. It contains a wealth of unpublished detail about public school life before and during the War, and how these establishments and the country at large coped with the devastating loss of so many of the brightest and best. Seldon and Walsh conclude that, 100 years on, public school values and character training, far from being concepts to be mocked, remain relevant and that the present generation would benefit from studying them and the example of their predecessors.??Those who read Public Schools and the Great War will have their prevailing assumptions about the role and image of public schools, as popularised in Blackadder, challenged and perhaps changed.

A School In Arms

by Timothy Halstead, A School In Arms Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A School In Arms books, For many people, their only knowledge of Uppingham's involvement in the Great War is through Vera Brittain's Testament of Youth and its account of her relationship with three men who went to the school and lost their lives during the war. In this book, the author discusses the involvement of more than 2,300 'Old Boys' who served in the Great War. Based mainly on material from the school's archives and the accounts and papers of the 'Old Boys', it provides the first comprehensive account of the school and the war. This book is not just about the 20 percent who died; it is just as much about the 80 percent who survived. The school's involvement is placed within the years before and after the war, as well as within the involvement of the public schools and wider society. It demonstrates that militarism at the school and in society, in the years before and after, was not as prevalent as is sometimes suggested; it argues that concern about Germany and the threat it posed should not be confused with jingoism. By examining the school's contribution, it demonstrates that this was not just a war for young men on the front line; it shows the wide variety of skills the 'Old Boys' and staff contributed to the war effort and explains why they believed it was worth fighting for, despite the appalling cost. For the first time, the book explains the key role of the school's Officer Training Corps (OTC) commanding officer in the establishment of the national OTC scheme in 1908, which would be a source of more than 100,000 officers during the Great War. It also highlights for the first time the involvement of two 'Old Boys' in the Borkum incident in 1910; this was one of the most high-profile incidents between Germany and Britain, as tensions rose between the two countries in the years leading to the outbreak of the war in 1914. Above all, it explains how Uppingham's educational ethos equipped men to serve in the Great War.
