This chapter examines narratives of patriotism in the propaganda work of the National War Aims Committee (NWAC). It proposes a framework of interactive and interdependent ‘presentational patriotisms’ within which the content of NWAC propaganda can best be understood. It suggests that many themes and ideas used by the NWAC propagandists were discernible in earlier periods of British history. This chapter also discusses the patriotic role played by religion and explains that most clerics of virtually all denominations supported the war.
