    Abstract

    Much has been written about how Great
    Britain remembers the events of World War
    Two. The prevailing tendency within British
    society is to focus on the positive aspects of
    the War to see the entire war as ‘Britain’s
    finest hour’ This often minimizes
    controversial aspects of the conflict, and
    the diversity of experience across the rest
    of the British Isles, in order to reinforce
    notions of British unity. This has been
    described by historians as the ‘Churchill
    paradigm’, which manifests itself not only in
    mental memory, but in collective
    expressions of a society’s identity.
