Labour at War

Oxford University Press

The significance of the post-war future for French and British labour reformism during the war made demobilization the moment of reckoning. Demobilization was nearly as complex a process as the wartime mobilization had been. The disbanding of vast armies, with the risk of unemployment and dissatisfaction among returned servicemen, was central. This chapter is concerned with the question of whether wartime state intervention would be jettisoned, retained for an interim period, or permanently adapted to the purposes of peace.

Keywords:   state intervention, servicemen, labour reformism, demobilization, wartime mobilization, unemployment
