|Title:||Constructing the Enemy Within: Rumours of Secret Gun Platforms and Zeppelin Bases in Britain, August-October 1914||Contributor(s):||Holman, Brett (author)||Publication Date:||2017||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/20096||Open Access Link:||http://bjmh.org.uk/index.php/bjmh/article/view/151/134||Abstract:||This article explores the false rumours of secret German gun platforms and Zeppelin bases which swept Britain in the early months of the First World War and climaxed with the fall of Antwerp in October 1914, so persistently that they were repeatedly investigated by both the police and the military. They were the latest manifestation of a long-standing myth - complex around the threatening figure of an enemy within. They also represent an important moment in the British people's imaginative transition between the cautious optimism of the early months and the increasingly obvious likelihood of a long, total war.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||British Journal for Military History, 3(2), p. 22-42||Publisher:||British Commission for Military History||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||2057-0422||Field of Research (FOR):||210305 British History||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 74
