Was the “Myth of the Blitz” a myth? To some extent, all nations that experienced the war have made the war part of their national identity. For Americans, it’s the “Good War,” for Germans, the “Bad War,” for Russians, the “Great Patriotic War.” The Chinese see it as a victory over Japanese aggression; the Japanese see it as proof of the value of nationalism or pacifism, depending on whom you ask.
In Britain, the war is often portrayed as a confirmation of the values most associated with British identity: respect for the rule of law, a belief in fairness, and a stiff upper lip. They recognized a threat; they were attacked; they pulled together; they saved the world. For some, however, this view of the war is a myth, invented by propagandists during the war and maintained by historians and politicians after the war.
One problem with this argument, though, is that many of those who experienced the war were, and continued to be, strong proponents of this view themselves. In this paper, use the sources from Weeks Four and Five, and choose THREE additional sources from either the “People’s War” site or the Imperial War Museum’s archives to support your argument about whether the Myth of the Blitz was a myth at all.
