This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the propaganda work of the National War Aims Committee (NWAC) in Great Britain during the First World War. It suggests that the NWAC propaganda offered Britons a complex and flexible narrative of patriotic identity and explains that its core message of duty was contextualised by several sub-patriotisms that explained what being British meant through the explication of key civilisational values. It also argue that contrary to concerns about its negative impact on civil liberty, NWAC representatives were encouraged to report public grievances in the hope of finding solutions or to try to set wartime discomforts in context.
