Summary
The belief that crime declines at the beginning of major wars as young men are drawn into the armed forces, and increases with the restoration of peace, as brutalised veterans are released on to a labour market reorganising for peace, has a long pedigree in Britain. But it has rarely been examined critically and scarcely at all for the period of the two World Wars of the 20th century. This is a serious investigation of criminal offending by members of the British armed forces both during and immediately after these wars
