This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book provides how Britain and Germany re-imagined themselves and the state of peace after 1918. It focuses upon two key journals: the Times Literary Supplement and the Bookman. The book explores how Ford Madox uses representations of noise in his writing about the war experience of his taciturn central character, Tietjens. It examines letters and other writings by German women near the end of the war. These women express courage in the face of hunger and show a willingness to continue to endure suffering for the sake of their homeland. The book discusses different view of Vienna, looking at the composer Ernst Krenek. It looks at the British composer and veteran Arthur Bliss, who was less interested in questions of 'national' music than in questions of bereavement and mourning after the war.
