The Influence of Public Opinion on the Armed Forces
This chapter analyzes the portrayal of Germany and its people in Britain in order to shed light on the views that would have influenced young Britons joining the BAOR. The focus is on media that are likely to have been encountered by young British men, such as the British press, nonfictional and fictional literature, and war films. The chapter also considers the impact of Germany's economic recovery on British opinion. With regard to cultural and more personal relations between the BAOR and the Germans, a number of relevant publications point to factors that potentially influenced the view of the general British public toward Germany and that of individual soldiers stationed in Germany.
