Dr Alex Mayhew is Assistant Professor in the Department of International History at LSE. A historian of modern warfare, he is particularly interested in the ways in which individuals navigate crises – the First World War providing an excellent case study of this. His work explores soldiers’ morale, their sensemaking and psychologies, as well as their relationship with society and the environment. This is the topic of his first book, Making Sense of the Great War: Englishness and Morale on the Western Front, which is published by Cambridge University Press.
