British Public Attitudes Towards the Second World War | RUSIBy The Cove June 13, 2019
This fascinating article, first posted The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) and written by Joel Faulkner Rogers, examines the results of a survey of the British public that shows both profound reverence and some striking ignorance towards Britain’s involvement in the Second World War.
When reading the article, members of the Cove Team wondered what sort of results would come from a similar survey if it was conducted in Australia?
Reverence for those who served is obvious on ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. However, how much military history do you think the Australian public are actually aware of?
