Details

Beginning with discussions of the British Army’s attitude toward sex, the soldier’s moral code, and army morale, this study looks in depth at the sexual lives of troops on the Western Front. Beyond the usual topics of venereal disease and sexual violence, Cherry explores organized prostitution, the Army’s ‘red lamp’ official brothels and fraternization with local women, always mindful that ‘the story of the soldier’s sexual life is arguably also the story of a woman’s survival strategy’.
