    Hello, fellow TSR members.

    Does anyone know anything that contradicts the source below:

    - Balance of females over the age of fourteen in Britain:
    595 per thousand in 1911.
    638 per thousand in 1921.
    - Proportion of widows in Britain:
    38 per thousand in 1911.
    43 per thousand in 1921.

    - Arthur Marwick, The Deluge: British Society and the First World War (1965).

    I am writing an essay on whether WWI was a war worth fighting (my answer is yes). This source obviously doesn't support my argument, but I was wondering if any of you know if there is a contradiction to this source, which will back-up my answer.
