Did your research take you to any unexpected places? My research took me to archives and libraries across the UK and North America. Many of these were major national library and archives, but I also visited a range of smaller regimental museums in the UK too.
These archives were full of wonderful material and I was fortunate to meet many expert curators and archivists.
I also travelled to several Korean War memorials in the UK. What did you enjoy the most about writing your book?
What I enjoyed most I suppose was piecing everything together — I had archival, written and spoken material from all sorts of places to get a sense of the overall impact of the Korean War on Britain.
The responses to the war were varied and in many cases astonishing. What did you find hardest about writing your book? Researching war and conflict can uncover both moving and shocking histories. Listening to oral history testimony, reading letters between loved ones and looking up casualty figures were all sobering and emotive experiences for me as a historian.
Korea was a particularly destructive conflict, for all those involved, and writing this history could be challenging at times. Is this your first published book, or have you had others published?
Yes, this is my first published book — I am thrilled to have a book of my own on my bookshelf! Why did you choose to publish with MUP? Emotional Survival and the Great War, but it also contains fascinating recent research on the environmental history of war, disability and rehabilitation after war, and case studies on the Home Guard and Special Operations Executive.
So I really wanted my social history of the Korean War to be part of such a vibrant series. Did you approach writing this book differently to any of your previous work? Have you had time to think about your next research project yet?

What are you working on now? In researching this book, I found that many of the servicemen sent to Korea were not setting off from the UK, but from Germany.
The British bases in the North West region of Germany formed the central point of a constellation of British military bases across the world.
My next project then will be looking at the social history of these bases in more detail, asking what sort of communities they were and how a range of base residents from service children to teachers lived with the uncertainty of the Cold War and global politics after Its central methodology will be oral history and I am very excited to speak to former residents of these bases about their experiences, particularly as many of these bases are closing in great landowners, they formed the ruling class in the Roman Republic Plebians in the Roman Republic, a social class made up of minor landholders, craftspeople, merchants, and small farmers.
