This chapter examines how the study of France has played a pivotal role in the development of ‘war and culture studies’ in the UK. It first considers more generally the ‘cultural turn’ in war studies in recent decades, and then looks specifically at the work of the Group for War and Culture Studies (GWACS) and its contributing scholars in developing a particular approach to the relationship between war and culture during conflict and its aftermath in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It asks: Why should the study of war be of such interest to scholars in the humanities and to students and researchers in French and Francophone Studies in particular?

Keywords:   France, French Studies, war and culture studies, Group for War and Cultural Studies, war, culture
