Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes questions, how wartime practices were understood, both internally and externally and how moral judgement operated in wartime societies to include or exclude various behaviors or attitudes, which have been applied to military or social history. It explores whether there was a heuristic value or even a militant one attached to the war profits issue. 'War profiteer' is defined as those who have been denounced into 'true' or 'false' war profiteers, depending on the accurate or calumnious nature of the denunciation. The generic categories are those of 'war profiteer' and 'war profiter' along with their subdivisions. These allow the different, individual separate cases, which are geographically spread all across the country, to be grouped and cross-referenced.
