Dr. Emmanuelle Cronier is a lecturer in contemporary history at the University of Picardie - Jules Verne. In her doctoral research entitled, “Leave and soldiers on leave in Paris during the First World War,” she adopted a holistic approach to First World War societies, addressing issues such as combatants' morale, social and family bonds, identities and wartime moral hierarchies, and the transgressive behaviors of the soldiers.
Clémentine Vidal-Naquet is the author of Couples in the Great War: The Tragic and the Ordinary Conjugal Bond. Her book studies the fragile bonds created between spouses during the Great War and its repercussions on approximately five million married and unmarried couples in France.
