My primary research interest focuses on the social and cultural history of the First World War and on the Royal Navy in particular, where I look primarily at issues of moral, discipline and combat motivation, and on the relationship between the navy as a military institution and the society from which it was drawn. I also have a wider interest in the cultural and social history of warfare, and of the commemoration and memorialisation of war in the first half of the twentieth century.
