Patrick Deer. Culture in Camouflage: War, Empire, and Modern British Literature. Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 2009. Argues that Britain developed a 'war culture' in the Second World War which was very different to that of the First and which 'colonised' the national consciousness in the rest of the century. It's from a literature perspective so it may not hold up as history. Has a chapter on airmindedness.
