The First World War left Britain weakened both domestically and
internationally. Its legacy continued to affect numerous areas of social, cultural
and life for ordinary British citizens for the decades to follow. Industrial
relations, women’s suffrage, agriculture and fisheries, state intervention,
international relations and even the drinking laws all felt the effects of the
aftermath of the Great War.
