Damaged, disturbed and dismembered: disability and war in the 20th century

Wars in the 20th century have been responsible for the deaths of millions of people. Still more come back from conflict with permanent disabilities, in body and mind, in need of medical treatment, on-going care and financial support. Drawing on the wide range of materials in the National Archives, Dr Julie Anderson explores the history of people disabled in war in the 20th century.

This talk was part of The National Archives Diversity Week, a series of events and activities aimed at promoting equality and diversity in how The National Archives works and what we do.
