    This is a survey of 20th century British military history, written from an explicit class and gender lense (and race, to a more limited degree). This is most useful in explicating some of the WWI fractures within the suffrage movement, and the attempts during WWII to police the lives of the working class targets of the blitz, which hindered more effective emergency response measures. German stumbles when she gets into the 1990s and post 9/11 era, where, despite this being the period of debates over women's and LGBTQ inclusion in the British military, she veers off into focusing on US actions in the GWOT rather than the UK.
