The Accrington Pals - Peter Whelan
Journey's End - R. C. Sherriff

Any help or general ideas on them would be appreciated.

I'm especially looking at the themes of 'The home front' and Comradeship.

Thanks

There's plenty about comradeship in Journey's End, just look at the talks between Osborne and Stanhope at any part of the book, and the way Stanhope looks after Raleigh in the last scene. Maybe say how the way Stanhope treats Osborne contrasts to the way he treats his superior officers. Depends on this essay title.

I haven't read the other, sorry.

Home front - Accrington Pals - look at the role of bertha (how she got a job) may (how her business developed, had ideas of her own) and generally all of the women sticking together (going to the town hall to find out what's happening to their men).
Journey's End - could talk about how the men see/reflect on their home life before the war. Mention the way they talk about home life in between discussing death/war.

Comradeship - Journeys End - same as what first person said. Talk about Osbourne and Stanhope perhaps (how Stanhope looks up to Osbourne even though he's a rank below him)
Accrington Pals - How the men all joined up together / women stick together. Not much to comment on really
