Description

This essay argues that the radical left significantly influenced the politics of World War II. It also argues that pre World War II national identities and images were found to be wanting in the years from 1940 to 1945.

With nearly every major demand for additional contribution to the war effort, the rhetoric of equality of sacrifice led to the expression of class antagonism. Given the context of the smouldering working-class suspicions of the rich that lingered on from the immediate pre-war years of unemployment, official injunctions of “equality of sacrifice” provided both a language and a rationale for continuing expressions of class resentment.
