Summary

Historians of the First and Second World Wars have consistently underestimated the importance of religion in British society in the first half of the twentieth century. In this compelling and fascinating study of the role of religion in the British Army in both World Wars, Michael Snape shows that religion had much greater currency and influence among British soldiers than has previously been recognised.
